Earlier this week, in Westford, Massachusetts, an auto accident occurred at 6:30am after a Honda CRV veered from the southbound side of 495 into the northbound side. The Honda was broadsided by an oncoming 18-wheeler and hit by a mini-van.
According to police, a 37-year-old male passenger was killed instantly in the collision. Emergency responders were not able to revive the driver, who also died. One man was from Fitchburg and other from Templeton. Both of the car crash victims were taken to Lowell General Hospital. Two other people sustained minor injuries, and the highway reopened several hours later after state police and rescue workers finished tending to the victims.
The crash is being investigated by the Massachusetts State Police, the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, the State Police Crime Scene Services Section, and the State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Section. As of Wednesday afternoon, no charges had been filed in this motor vehicle accident.
