Police said that a 41-year-old man drove his black 2013 Lexus SUV into a Wrong Way on Route MA-203, causing a four-car accident.
According to the police report, six people were involved in a four-car, wrong-way crash on Gallivan Blvd. Police stated that the Lexus driver drove into the opposite lane and collided with the second car. After the first two cars crashed, they then collided with two other vehicles before coming to a stop bringing the total number of cars involved to four.
A witness driving behind the SUV said that it appeared as if the SUV driver was either distracted, on alcohol, or the SUV developed a mechanical fault. She added that the SUV hit the oncoming car on the left side. After the first collision the witness stated that the other two cars then hit the first vehicle.
First emergency responders arrived on the scene shortly after the accident happened. According to a crew member, the drivers of the first two-car crash were in critical condition. Both of the drivers were immobile. Authorities stated that the other two cars involved in the crash had four people in them. The occupants reportedly had several severe injuries including some to their necks and backs.
They were all transported to a nearby city hospital, while police investigate the crash.
