ANDOVER, Mass. — The Massachusetts State Police are actively investigating a fatal three-car crash that happened early Sunday morning in Andover on Route 93 southbound north of Exit 40.
The MSP told Boston 25 News the accident happened at approximately 2:17 a.m. when a 52-year-old man from Lawrence, driving a 2014 Toyota Sienna, was traveling southbound on Rt. 93 before he struck a 2011 Honda Accord, driven by a 32-year-old Malden woman.
This crash caused the Accord to go off the ride side of the road into the tree line. The Sienna became disabled in the middle of the travel lane before colliding with a 2010 Toyota Corolla, driven by a 64-year-old man from Manchester, New Hampshire.
When crews arrived on the scene, it was determined that the Manchester man was dead. The Accord driver was seriously injured and later transported to Lawrence General Hospital. Passengers in the Sienna, a 28-year-old woman and a 45-year-old woman both from Lawrence, were transported to Lawrence General Hospital for minor injuries. The driver of the Sienna was reportedly not injured.
Two southbound travel lanes were closed for over three hours to facilitate the scene reconstruction and cleanup, but those lanes have since reopened.
The crash remains under investigation by Troop A of the Massachusetts State Police with assistance from the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, the State Police Crime Scene Services Section, and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
