BRIDGEWATER — Police Chief Christopher Delmonte and Acting Fire Chief John Schlatz report that the Bridgewater Police and Fire Departments responded to a multi-vehicle crash on Tuesday morning.

At approximately 11:35 a.m., Bridgewater Police and Fire received several 911 calls for a report of a multi-vehicle crash at the intersection of Route 18 and Winter Street.

Upon arrival, first responders observed a Toyota SUV, a Ford pick-up truck and a Chevy pick-up truck that had collided. A Massachusetts State Trooper was also on-scene rendering first aid.

The operator and sole occupant of the Ford, a 23-year-old Middleborough man, had been ejected from the vehicle. He was transported via medical helicopter to a Rhode Island hospital for treatment of his injuries.

The Chevy’s operator and sole occupant, a 44-year-old Bridgewater man, was transported by a Bridgewater Fire ambulance to a local hospital. The operator of the Toyota, a 38-year-old Bridgewater woman, and a 5-year-old passenger were both transported to a local hospital by a Bridgewater Fire ambulance.

The preliminary investigation indicates that the Ford pick-up truck was traveling north on Route 18 and collided with both the Toyota and Chevy at the intersection.

A portion of Route 18 was closed during the investigation and reopened at 1:30 p.m. The Massachusetts Department of Transportation assisted with closing the roads.

The crash remains under investigation by the Bridgewater Police Accident Reconstruction Unit, assisted by the Raynham Police Department Accident Reconstruction Unit and Plymouth County Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
