CONCORD, MA — At approximately 2:50pm on Thursday, August 26, 2020, Troopers assigned to State Police-Concord responded to reports of a crash involving four vehicles on Route 2 eastbound in the area of Sudbury Road.
Upon their arrival they located the operator of a 2016 Honda Civic, identified as Denise Frangules, 87, of Concord, suffering from serious injuries. Concord Fire and EMS responded and MedFlight was requested.
Preliminary investigation all four vehicles were traveling in the left lane of Route 2 eastbound when they began to slow due to traffic ahead. A 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, operated by a 35-year-old man from Arlington, crashed into the rear of the Honda Civic. This caused a chain reaction crash where the Honda was pushed into a 2020 Toyota Corolla and that vehicle was pushed into a 2014 Ford Taurus.
The operator and passenger of the Toyota, a 90-year-old woman and a 90-year-old man from Concord, were both transported to Emerson Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The operator of the Ford, a 54-year-old man from Wilmington, was also transported to Emerson Hospital. The occupants of the Jeep were not injured. Frangules was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital, by MedFlight, where she succumbed to her injuries.
The cause and circumstances of the crash remain under investigation by Troopers assigned to State Police-Concord, Collision Analysis Reconstruction Section, and Crime Scene Services. Troopers were assisted on scene by MassDOT, Concord Police, and Concord Fire.
