In Middleboro, Massachusetts last week, a motor vehicle crash involving a tractor-trailer and two cars seriously injured a 41-year-old Falmouth man. State police say the accident occurred on Route 495 near Exit 6 around 8:11am when a 2002 Volkswagon hit a tractor-trailer that was stopped in the breakdown lane. That crash sent a 2007 Toyota Corola off the road and into a wooded area, seriously injuring the driver of the Toyota and the Volkswagon.
One of the auto accident victims was taken to Boston Medical Center and the other to Morton Hospital in Taunton. The tractor-trailer operator was not injured.
Following the motor vehicle collision, Route 495 South was closed for approximately two hours. Traffic was diverted onto Route 24 North during the initial investigation. Massachusetts State Police, along with several other agencies, are still investigating the car crash.
