Massachusetts State Troopers last night responded to a serious two-vehicle crash on Route 95 that resulted in the fatality of one of the drivers.
According to Dave Procopio of Massachusetts State Police, preliminary investigation indicates that at approximately 8:45 p.m., a 2005 Toyota Camry sedan and a 2009 Cadillac Escalade sport utility were northbound on Route 95 in Woburn prior to Exit 54 when, for reasons still under investigation, the Camry veered to the right and struck a guardrail on the far edge of the breakdown lane. Following that impact, the Camry was redirected back to the left across all four northbound travel lanes. In the left lane, the Camry crossed the path of the Cadillac, which struck the sedan.
The driver of the Camry, a 37-year-old Needham man, was extricated from his vehicle by the Woburn Fire Department and transported to an area hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.
The driver of the Cadillac, a 73-year-old Boxford man, was transported to Winchester Hospital with suspected minor injuries. Two juvenile passengers were also transported for evaluation.
The facts and circumstances of the crash, including why the Camry operator lost control of his vehicle, remain 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.
The scene was cleared at 10:59 p.m.
