Five injured, four seriously, after vehicle goes over guardrail at Route 24 ramp



Five were injured, four seriously after a morning crash at a Route 24 ramp.

According to Dave Procopio of Massachusetts State Police, just after 5:30 a.m., patrols out of the State Police-Milton Barracks responded to Route 93 NB/Route 1 SB in Randolph (near the Canton line) at the ramp to Route 24 south in Randolph for a serious crash involving a van that caused life-threatening injuries to one man and serious injuries to three other occupants.

The single-vehicle crash involved a 2019 Dodge van owned by Enterprise Fleet Management with five occupants total. Responding Troopers found that the van had gone over the guardrail. Randolph Fire and EMS, as well as a passing Good Samaritan who stopped to assist, began performing emergency medical aid.

Four occupants were transported to Boston Medical Center with serious injuries:

a 23-year-old South Windsor, Conn., man, who was driving the van;
a 27-year-old New Britain, Conn., man;
a 32-year-old New Britain, Conn., woman;
and a 29-year-old Connecticut man.

A fifth occupant, a 30-year-old woman from Vernon, Conn., was transported to BMC with minor injuries.

The Good Samaritan who stopped at the scene to assist with medical aid was a volunteer firefighter and a dispatcher for Brewster Ambulance. The occupants of the van are employees of a company that provides inventory services to other businesses. They were enroute to a job site at the time of the crash.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation by the State Police-Milton Barracks, State Police Troop H detectives, the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, and the State Police Crime Scene Services Section.

The crash resulted in the right lane being closed at the scene until 9:30 a.m.
