A Northhampton man was killed and two others seriously injured in a car crash early Sunday morning inside the Sumner Tunnel.
According to State Police, just before 3:30 am Troopers from the State Police-Tunnels Barracks responded to a single-vehicle crash in the Sumner Tunnel on the ramp to Storrow Drive Boston. When the Troopers arrived on scene they discovered three occupants in the vehicle, each with serious injuries.
“The 24-year-old operator, a man from Northampton, succumbed to his injuries at the scene,” said the State Police in a statement. “The passengers, an 18-year-old woman and 22-year-old man, were transported by ambulance to Mass General Hospital with serious injuries. The ramp was closed during the investigation and clean up of the vehicle.”
State Police from Troop H are now investigating the facts and circumstances of the crash with help from the State Police Crime Scene Services Section and Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section. Troopers were also assisted on scene by the Medical Examiner’s Office, Boston EMS, and MassDOT.
