Initially, a medical helicopter was requested to transport injured victims but it was later called off.  The victims were eventually transported to area hospitals with serious injuries.  Witnesses reported car parts littering the street at the scene of the crash.  The road was completely closed until approximately 4:00 pm when one lane was re-opened for traffic.

The cause of the crash as well as the condition of the victims remains unknown at this time as the police investigation is still ongoing.

The driver of the Ford pickup was Brittany Akstin, 29-years-old; she was ultimately cited for vehicle code violations. She was transported to Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital to attend to her injuries. The other occupants of her vehicle were uninjured.

In response to the rear-end collision, the minivan driver tried to turn left towards Brownfield Drive to remove herself from the path of oncoming traffic. The driver was a Bridgewater resident, and nearly 60 years-old. She did not move quickly enough, and was hit by a Jeep Sport Utility Vehicle, causing her to then collide head-on with a Toyota sedan.
