Details are scarce about a two-vehicle crash far to the west of Suffolk County yesterday. A brief news report from Ashfield, Massachusetts, says several people were seriously injured in a two-vehicle collision there.
Emergency crews from surrounding Franklin County towns responded to the Route 112 car accident early yesterday evening.
Four ambulances were called to the scene where three people were trapped in a vehicle, according to the report.
A State Police spokesperson said no one had died in the crash, but that there were “serious injuries.”
A 2006 Chevy Colorado pick-up truck and a 1995 Honda Accord collided near Sanderson Academy.
In an unrelated accident just north of Boston, an elderly man was killed after being struck by a car as he was crossing a Peabody street. The 87-year-old had just left Saint Adelaide Parish.
The driver of the vehicle, 84 years old, stopped at the scene outside the church in his 2004 Buick LeSabre.
The victim was apparently a regular attendee at Saint Adelaide. After the accident, he was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, but he succumbed to his injuries just hours after admission to the facility.
A news report indicates that it is uncertain if the driver was traveling down the street at the time his vehicle hit the pedestrian, or if he was pulling in or out of one of the parking lots either next to the church or across the street from it.
After a tragic pedestrian accident such as this, family members often sit down and discuss their legal options with an experienced attorney.
