Two people are dead after an early morning head-on highway crash.

According to Massachusetts State Police, at just after 2:00 a.m. on Monday, Massachusetts State Police Troopers from the Andover Barracks responded to a three-vehicle crash on Route 93 southbound in Methuen that resulted in two deaths. 

Preliminary investigation indicates that a 2020 Toyota Rav4 was travelling the wrong direction; northbound in the southbound lanes on Route 93. The Rav4, operated by a 53-year-old Quincy resident, struck a 2021 Toyota Camry head-on. The operator of the Camry, a 21-year-old Quincy resident, was determined to be deceased on scene.

After the head on crash, the Camry came into contact with a third vehicle. The operator of that vehicle was not injured. The operator of the Rav4 was transported to a local hospital where they were pronounced deceased.

All three lanes of Route 93 were closed for approximately three hours while the investigation and crash recovery was underway. The crash remains under investigation by Troop A of the Massachusetts State Police, the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, and the State Police Crime Scene Services Section. Troopers on scene were assisted by Methuen PD, and Methuen Fire and EMS.
