A 17-year-old teenager has died in a horrific early-morning accident, according to a report on Boston.com. It appears that the teenager’s vehicle was the only one on the scene when local police and the fire department arrived at 7 a.m. The victim, who has yet to be officially identified, was rushed to the nearby Lahey Hospital and Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Preliminary reports indicate that the driver left the roadway and crashed into a tree. The investigation into the accident is ongoing.
In a separate road traffic incident in Boston, two young girls were hit by a vehicle near a bus stop, according to a report by NECN. The incident involved an 11-year-old and a 13-year-old, and both were taken to nearby hospitals by helicopter and ambulance respectively. They were treated for serious injuries.
An investigation into the incident continues, but police officials suggest that a Dodge Ram Truck was involved. It appears that the truck struck the two girls while they were crossing the street, but a full investigation is still being conducted by local and state police.
Community residents suggest that the intersection is a dangerous one, and there have been many close calls of a similar nature in the past. Particularly problematic is the solar glare that appears while traveling early in the morning. Residents are urging authorities to take measures to prevent similar accidents from occurring in the future.
Although the report did not provide enough information to determine if negligence played a role in this case, the victims may end up filing a personal injury lawsuit. This could help offset the medical bills their parents now face due to injuries sustained from the accident.
