1 killed in Massachusetts 3-vehicle crash
METHUEN, Mass. (AP) — Massachusetts State Police have identified a man who was killed in a three-vehicle crash on Interstate 495 in Methuen.
Troopers say 24-year-old Rafael Sandoval of Lawrence died in the accident that happened at about 5:30 p.m. Thursday. Two other people were injured.
Authorities say they’re trying to determine whether Sandoval was driving the car that caused the crash.
State police say the driver of a Honda Accord traveling in the southbound lanes veered into the breakdown lane for some reason, then struck a flatbed tow truck with a car in its bed in the breakdown lane. The Accord then hit another car being driven on the highway.
The highway didn’t fully reopen until just before 9 p.m.
The accident remains under investigation.
