Massachusetts State Police have issued an update this afternoon on a crash Saturday that seriously injured multiple people.

According to Dave Procopio of Massachusetts State Police, at 9:21 p.m., State Police and Wrentham Police patrols, as well as the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, Crime Scene Services Section, and detectives, responded to Route 1 south in Wrentham in the area of the Arbor Inn Motel. Four motorists were transported to hospitals with serious injuries.

Preliminary investigation by Troopers from the State Police-Foxboro Barracks and the crash reconstruction unit indicates that 2013 Jeep Wrangler operated by a 66-year-old Plymouth woman was southbound on Route 1 (Washington Street) while, simultaneously, a 2003 Honda CRV operated by an 18-year-old Wrentham woman was traveling on the northbound side. As the Jeep approached the Arbor Inn Motel, 900 Washington St., the Honda operator attempted to turn left toward the motel lot, according to the preliminary investigation. As the Honda crossed over the double yellow line, going from the northbound side of the road into the southbound side, the Jeep’s front end came into contact with the right rear of the Honda.

The injured people, some of whom were juveniles, were transported to Rhode Island Hospital and Hasbro Children’s Hospital. Officials do not yet have an update on the condition of the seriously injured individuals.

The crash remains under investigation at this time by the State Police-Foxboro Barracks, Wrentham Police, the State Police Troop H Detective Unit, the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, the State Police Crime Scene Services Section.
