Man dies in 2-car crash

A man in Massachusetts was killed after being involved in a two-car collision in Foxborough on April 18. The deceased victim, a 61-year-old man from Millis, was one of the drivers in the accident. Authorities reported the accident the day that it happened and then confirmed that one of the drivers had died the following day. The fatal car accident took place along Route 140 near the intersection of South Cross Street. At around 4:50 p.m., a black Nissan Altima and a maroon pickup truck collided with each other. Before he died, the Nissan driver was extricated from his vehicle with the Jaws of Life. Though a helicopter was requested to transport the man to the hospital, he was taken to Norwood Hospital by ambulance instead. The driver of the pickup truck did not require hospitalization, and he was released after being treated at the scene. When the auto accident was reported, it was still under investigation by the Foxborough Police Department, the Massachusetts State Police and the Norfolk District Attorney’s Office. There were no initial reports about what caused the accident or whether any criminal charges are being filed. A person who was hospitalized after a two-car collision may incur medical costs that they were not prepared for financially. If the other driver caused the accident, a lawyer may be able to help a car accident victim to file a personal injury claim. Family members of a deceased car accident victim can also file a claim for compensation if their loved one was killed by a driver’s negligent actions.
