Merrimac, MA (July 5, 2018) – A multi car pile-up on I-495 Wednesday resulted in traffic headaches for holiday travelers and caused injuries to those involved in the crash. The collision happened just after 4:00 pm on 495 North just prior to Broad Street. Multiple vehicles were involved in this crash. One of the vehicles ended up off the roadway and came to rest on the right shoulder, resulting in that area being blocked. Traffic backed up for a considerable distance leading towards the crash scene until police could clear the damaged vehicles from the road.
At least one was injured in the crash and received medical treatment as a result. The extent and severity of injuries remains unknown at this time. Police were able to clear the roadway within an hour and allow traffic to pass through again. The accident remains under investigation. No word on the identities of those involved.
