WILMINGTON, MA — Monday night’s four-vehicle crash on Route 93 southbound in Wilmington remains under investigation by the Massachusetts State Police.
Preliminary investigation indicates that a Honda Fit collided with the rear of a tractor-trailer unit, causing the Fit to veer to its right across several lanes and impact another vehicle, a Chevrolet. After that impact the Fit was propelled back across the southbound lanes toward the median, striking the guardrail.
The Fit came to rest in the left lane, where it was struck by a Honda Accord. As a result of that impact, the Accord was propelled to the right, across all southbound lanes and off the edge of the road, where it struck a tree.
The operator of the Fit, an adult female, was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital with serious life-threatening injuries. The operators of the other two cars were also transported to area hospitals with serious injuries. No updates on their conditions are available at this time.
The tractor-trailer that was initially struck continued to travel southbound and has not yet been located.
Following the initial sequence of crashes, a secondary crash between other vehicles occurred north of the initial crash site. That crash had less serious impacts.
The crashes remain under investigation by Troop A of the Massachusetts State Police with the assistance of the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section and State Police Crime Scene Services Section. No further information is being released at this time.
