Early morning crash claims the lives of three young adults

When a single car crash claims the lives of all of its occupants, friends and family members are often left to wonder what happened to cause the crash. Did the driver fall asleep while driving? Did the driver swerve to prevent hitting an animal? Was alcohol involved?

It may be up to Boston accident reconstruction experts to determine the cause of a car crash that took the lives of three young adults early one morning.

According to news reports, the car crash took place at about 4:30 a.m. Two men, a 19-year-old and a 20-year-old, died at the scene. A 19-year-old woman survived the accident but died later at a hospital.

The initial police estimate is that the car was travelling north on Morrissey Boulevard near Pope's Hill in Dorchester. For some reason the car left the road between two sections of guardrail and went up a grassy hill when it flipped over and hit a bridge abutment.

Employees at a nearby donut shop called 911 for help and with other witnesses tried to help the trapped occupants of the car. Police and firefighters were able to extricate the occupants, but it was too late for the two men who died at the scene.

The police also claim that speed may have been a factor.

Friends of the accident victims state that they were well-liked. They had been to a party earlier in the evening, although it is not yet known if alcohol may have been a factor.

When a driver is negligent in some manner, such as through speeding or alcohol impairment, the driver may be liable for any injuries to passengers. In this case, the families of the two passengers may seek to obtain compensation for the wrongful death of their family members.
