A local woman has died after a serious crash that occurred this month.
According to Massachusetts State Police, just after 3 p.m. February 2, 2020 Troopers assigned to State Police-Bourne responded to reports of a single-vehicle crash on Route 195 Westbound at mile marker 36.6 in Marion.
Upon their arrival they discovered a 2017 Nissan Murano that had been involved in a serious crash with the operator, identified as Brooke Sweet, 20, of Mattapoisett, suffering from life-threatening injuries.
Preliminary investigation shows the vehicle was traveling Westbound on Route 195 when the operator lost control and struck a guardrail to the left side of the road. Troopers are investigating whether excessive speed was a possible factor in the crash. Sweet was transported by ambulance to Tobey Hospital and later transported by MedFlight to Beth Israel Hospital. Sweet later succumbed to her injuries. No other vehicles were involved in the crash and Sweet was the sole occupant of the Nissan.
The crash remains under investigation by Troop D of the Massachusetts State Police along with the Collision Analysis Reconstruction Section and Crime Scene Services Section.
Marion Fire and EMS assisted at the scene.
