According to the rescue team’s report, over 6 vehicles were involved in an accident when a trailer truck jackknifed on I-93.
This incident happened eastbound I-93, near Victory Road. A trailer truck driver reportedly lost control of the truck and swerved uncontrollably on the highway. Police say that the truck struck two vehicles in the process, and then fell over on the highway.
This all likely happened at a relatively high rate of speed, police suspect. The truck, while flipping, jackknifed across the highway. As a result of this, several other oncoming vehicles crashed into the trailer truck, causing even more collisions.
First emergency responders arrived at the site of the crash within minutes to attend to the many victims. It was reported that 4 people are in critical condition, including the trailer truck operator. 11 Other drivers and passengers are said to have sustained injuries as well. Several have been flown to the hospital under critical care, while the others with less severe injuries were transported in ambulances.
A notable sized Traffic jam was reported on this route so drivers are advised to take alternative routes until the debris is all clear.
Dr. Brian Elias, from The Accident and Injury Team, commented on the crash: “This was a serious accident that resulted in multiple injuries as well as leaving one person in critical condition. We are sorry to have this happen here in Boston. As drivers, we must remember to be vigilant because accidents can occur suddenly and without warning. Please seek medical attention if you have been in an accident. Regardless of whether the crash was major or minor, there are often significant residual injuries that can manifest later. We hope all the injuries are not life-threatening, and we wish everyone involved in the crash a speedy recovery.”
