Massachusetts State Police investigating crash that killed Taunton woman, release name of victim



UPDATE: Massachusetts State Police have released the name of the Taunton woman killed in Saturday’s crash.

Saturday morning at about 1:00 a.m., State Police responded to a 2 car crash on Route 93 Southbound, north of Exit 5 in Braintree which claimed the life of a Taunton woman.

Preliminary investigation by Trooper Colin McKelligan indicates that a 2003 Buick Rendezvous was traveling on Route 93 Southbound when, for reasons still under investigation, the operator lost control of the vehicle, causing it to crash into the guardrail before coming to rest in the right travel lane. The operator exited her vehicle and was standing behind it when a 2005 Nissan Altima, which was traveling southbound, struck the Buick, pushing it into the operator.

The operator of the 2003 Buick Rendezvous has been identified as Sheikeya Davis, 29, of Taunton. She was pronounced deceased at the scene. The operator and sole occupant of the Nissan, a 20-year-old Brockton woman, was transported to Boston Medical Center for treatment of serious injuries.

The cause of this crash remains under investigation with assistance from the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, Crime Scene Services Section, Troop H detectives, and Troopers assigned to the Norfolk County District Attorney’s Office. No charges have been filed at this time.
