Candlelight vigil, balloon release, fundraiser, being held for two Brockton teens killed in crash



Two teens have now been killed, with two other teens transported to area hospitals following a crash on North Main Street in Randolph Tuesday night, according to the Norfolk District Attorney’s Office.

15-year-old Terry Boston, Jr. of Brockton was pronounced deceased on scene. His brother and presumed driver, 18-year-old Makhi Boston, was transported to Boston Medical Center via medical evacuation helicopter and admitted to intensive care where he later died. Two female passengers were also transported via ambulance to area hospitals.

Randolph Police were called to the scene of the crash at roughly 10:30 p.m. Initial observations and investigation indicated that the vehicle, a 2011 Nissan Altima, was traveling southbound, left the roadway, and collided with a tree in the vicinity of 701 North Main Street.

Friends of Boston brothers say that they were a member of the Brockton Raiders football team.

According to a GoFundMe fundraiser, “Terry and Makhi Boston the most caring, loving and genuine souls were taken from us far too soon. Nothing can prepare any of us for something as unimaginable as this. These Kings deserved so much more life.”

A balloon release and candle lighting is set to take place Saturday July 22nd at the Brockton High School parking lot at 7:00 p.m.

The facts and circumstances of how the vehicle left the road remain under investigation by Randolph Police, the Norfolk District Attorney’s Office Motor Vehicle Homicide Unit, and the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section and Crime Scene Services Section.

There are no charges in place at this stage of the investigation.
