UPDATE: Officials release IDs of two killed in rollover crash after hitting deer in Chelmsford

CHELMSFORD, Mass. — Officials have released the IDs of two people killed early Friday morning following a rollover crash in Chelmsford.

Massachusetts state police say Rudolph Vah, of Acton, and his female passenger Jartu Flamma, also of Acton, were both killed in the crash.

State Police responded to the crash on Interstate 495, Northbound near the Chelmsford rest stop. When emergency crews arrived they found an SUV driven by Vah, rolled over. Both Vah and Flamma were pronounced deceased on the scene.

The investigation suggests that the car rolled over and swerved into a wooded median after hitting a deer, police said. The victims have not been identified.

“No other vehicles are believed to be involved in the crash,” according to Massachusetts State Police.

The crash closed the left lanes of Route 495 northbound and southbound until approximately 10 a.m., Friday.
