A tragic head-on crash occurred in Bedford, Massachusetts on Saturday morning. The crash took place on the Middlesex Turnpike, near the intersection with Oak Park Drive, just a little before 9:00 am. At that time, multiple emergency units, including the Bedford Police and Bedford Fire Department were dispatched to the scene of the collision. Upon arrival, authorities discovered the crash involved a woman and an 85 year old man from Billerica.
Through a subsequent investigation, police were able to determine that the man was traveling south on Turnpike and the woman was traveling north in the opposite lane. The man’s vehicle crossed over the center line suddenly and struck the woman’s vehicle head-on. Emergency workers on scene administered treatment to both victims before transporting them to a nearby hospital. Unfortunately, the man succumbed to his injuries. The woman has injuries which are not believed to be life threatening. The man’s identity has not been released pending notification of his family. The crash investigation remains ongoing and at this time it is unclear what caused him drift into the oncoming travel lane.
