Head-on crash in Massachusetts kills 2, injures 3

Massachusetts State Police confirmed that two people died in a two-vehicle accident on Oct. 19. The car accident took place on Jamaicaway just before 3 a.m. Police say that a BMW 530XI crossed the centerline near Perkins Street and struck a Toyota Camry that was traveling in the opposite lane of traffic. The two passengers from the BMW were declared dead at the scene of the head-on collision. According to police, the women had not been wearing seat belts when they were killed, and they believe that the lack of seat belts was a factor that contributed to their deaths. It is unclear what may have caused the BMW driver to drift out of her lane or if she will be facing charges. The 26-year-old driver of the BMW and the 36-year-old driver of the Toyota were both taken to Beth Israel Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. A passenger from the Toyota was also transported to the same hospital. That passenger was reportedly in critical condition. Following the accident, the Jamaicaway was shut down for about three and a half hours. A person who has been injured in this type of accident may be left with significant expenses that they were not prepared for. An attorney might help someone in this situation file a personal injury complaint with the at-fault driver’s insurance provider in order to pursue financial compensation. If there were witnesses to the crash, their testimony along with police reports and traffic camera footage may help to build a strong claim.
