Woman killed in crash on Route 24
AVON, Mass. (WHDH) -- State police were investigating a deadly crash on Route 24 north overnight Friday.
State police were trying to piece together this accident but you can see they have cleared the roadway here along Route 24 North so all lanes of traffic are back open.
The accident happened just after midnight. State Police got the call for an apparent broken down vehicle that was in the middle lane. When they arrived, they found one car fully engulfed in fire. 7News was told that at least one driver had a broken leg. There was another car on the side of the road up against the guardrail.
A driver was trapped inside and was unresponsive so fire was called right away. One of the drivers was immediately taken by ground to Boston Medical Center. 7News was told she died at the hospital. Initially, reports indicated that the driver was a pregnant female but Massachusetts State Police confirmed that she was not pregnant.
The scene was clear and the roadway was reopened in time for the morning commute. State police spent a good part of the morning trying to recreate the scene and figure out exactly what happened.
