An early morning car accident in Marion, Massachusetts, on April 10 sent two people to the hospital. According to police, Jonathan Fonseca, 20, was driving west on Route 6 when he hit the curb and a utility pole, breaking the pole and causing it to fall across Route 6. The damage from the car crash (a broken utility pole and downed wires) forced authorities to close Route 6 for nine hours.
Fonseca and his passenger, 18-year-old Michelle Rico, were flown to the hospital by Med Flight helicopter. Their injuries were considered serious, according to the Marion police chief. As of last week, Ricco was in fair condition, and Fonseca had been treated and released from the hospital.
The Massachusetts State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstructions Section is investigating the auto accident along with the Marion Police. They believe that speed may have been a factor.
