Massachusetts State Police investigating crash that claimed the life of juvenile



Massachusetts State Police are investigating a fatal crash that took place Tuesday morning.

According to Dave Procopio of Massachusetts State Police, just after 7:15 a.m., Massachusetts State Troopers responded to a single-vehicle crash on Route 128 north at mile marker 51 in Manchester-by-the-Sea.

One occupant, a male who is believed to be a juvenile, was determined to be deceased on scene. A second occupant, a 26-year-old Florida man, suffered serious, life-threatening injuries and was transported to a Boston hospital via medical helicopter. MSP are still working to determine the identity of the juvenile victim as to determine who was driving the vehicle.

Preliminary investigation suggests the 2009 Honda Civic, for reasons still under investigation, veered off the road to the right and rolled into the wood line.

Both sides of the highway were temporarily closed to allow Medflight to land and transport the surviving victim. The scene was cleared at 8:54 AM.

The crash remains under investigation by Troop A of the Massachusetts State Police, the State Police Detective Unit assigned to the Essex County District Attorney’s Office, the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, and the State Police Crime Scene Services Section.

The Manchester Fire Department, Manchester Police Department, Gloucester Fire Department, Essex Fire Department, and Essex Police Department also responded to assist at the scene.
