Chelmsford, MA: Car goes airborne in accident on Rt. 3

26 Jan

A car traveling on Route 3 Northbound in Chelmsford left the roadway and ended up near Leedburg Street. Police on the scene described the car as having “gone airborne”. A man in the car suffered severe lacerations, and a Boston Medflight helicopter was called to transport him to a Beth-Israel Hospital in Boston. The helicopter landed at Robert’s Fields near Westford Street & Old Westford Rd.

A second car believed to be involved in the accident was located off the highway near Route 40, but no victim was located. A Massachusetts State Police helicopter responded to assist with the search for additional victims. Police believe a second victim may have fled the scene on foot. (UPDATE: After investigation, it was determined the second victim, described as having some injuries, entered a nearby store, where he called a taxi which then picked him up. Police located him at the emergency room of the Lahey Clinic in Burlington, where he had been dropped off. He is reported to have an active warrant for his arrest).
The accident is being investigated by the MSP Collision Accident Reconstruction Team.

6 year old girl killed in crash on I-90

9 Sep

Massachusetts State Police responded to a rollover accident with multiple people ejected on I-90 westbound in Auburn on Thursday at 1:00 PM. The first trooper on scene reported serious injuries and requested LifeFlight, which was not flying due to weather. The accident occurred in the middle lane, and the trooper reported finding a young girl ejected from the vehicle on the shoulder. The girl, an unidentified six year old, was transported by ambulance to UMass Medical Center in Worcester, where she was pronounced dead. From the State Police press release:

Preliminary investigation by Trooper Mario Tovar indicates that Lodia Rodriguez, 25, of Worcester, was driving a 2000 Chrysler Town and Country van in the middle travel lane when her vehicle made contact with a 2008 International 4400 box truck that was to the right of her van. After the impact, Rodriguez lost control of her van, which struck the guardrail adjacent to the breakdown lane. At this time a six-year-old girl, who was a passenger in the van, was ejected onto the roadway. The van careened to its left across all three lanes, struck the guardrail along the highway median, and then rolled over, coming to rest on its roof in the middle travel lane. Rodriguez and two four-year-old girls who were passengers in the van were transported to the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in Worcester with minor injuries.
The driver of the truck, John Gurr, 32, of New Britain, Conn., was not injured in the crash. 

The highway was closed for approximately 3 hours while the MSP Collision Analysis Reconstruction Team investigated the accident. Traffic on the Mass Pike backed up approximately 10 miles during this time.
