Massachusetts State Police: Moped rider killed after multi-vehicle crash on Route 24



Massachusetts State Police are investigating a crash that resulted in the death of a moped operator last night on Route 24.

According to Dave Procopio of Massachusetts State Police, preliminary investigation indicates that at just before 11:45 p.m. Thursday, the moped and 2012 Volkswagen Jetta made contact as the moped travelled from the right lane to the middle lane on Route 24 north in Brockton.

The male operator of the moped was ejected from the bike. The operator of the Volkswagen remained at the scene.

Immediately after the initial collision, three vehicles that had been traveling behind the Volkswagen and moped struck the moped as it lay on the roadway, after the operator had already been ejected from it.

The moped operator was transported by ambulance to Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton, where he was pronounced deceased.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing and is being conducted by the State Police-Milton Barracks, the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, and the State Police Crime Scene Services Section.

The scene was cleared at 12:48 a.m.

The victim’s name has yet to be released.
