Highways can be some of the most dangerous roads and accidents that occur there can be some of the most deadly. Vehicles tend to be going at high speeds, and highways tend to be congested. While driving on freeways and highways, all drivers must be especially careful to not let their attentiveness wane.
In Fairhaven, three people were seriously injured after a multi-vehicle crash. The accident was reported to police around 12:45 p.m., and emergency responders arrived at the scene soon afterwards. A motorist had pulled over on Route 240 southbound to fix a trailer hitch. Another vehicle hit a car and pushed this vehicle into the motorist on the side of the road.
The collision involved three vehicles and caused multiple victims to suffer from injuries. One person was Medflighted to a Boston hospital. Two other people were taken by ambulance to Rhode Island Hospital. The full extent of their injuries is still under review, and the accident is still under investigation.
