Police report that a tractor-trailer traveling along an overpass carrying beer kegs and containers was struck by another vehicle causing it to drop its contents onto the road below causing further accidents.
According to the Boston Police Department the truck’s contents fell off of the overpass after a car crashed into it on Charlesgate Road causing the containers it was transporting to litter the highway. It was reported that the Honda car, driven by a 35-year-old man, struck the truck and it flipped striking the guardrail just above the road at the overpass.
Police reported that an oncoming SUV and a Malibu below the overpass were struck by some of the containers. The containers reportedly fell on the front side of the SUV which made the driver lose control of the vehicle. The 27-year-old driver of the SUV swerved and sideswiped the oncoming Malibu.
The drivers of the tractor-trailer and the Honda were not injured.
The occupants of the SUV and the Malibu were reported to have sustained severe injuries while the driver of the SUV was reported to be in critical condition.
The victims were all transported to a nearby hospital.
