One person was pronounced dead at the hospital following a single car crash on Route 25 last Saturday, January 21.
Massachusetts State Police from the Bourne barracks responded to the scene of the crash around 12:15 PM. State police reported that a preliminary investigation determined that a 2006 Freightliner truck traveling on Route 25 West in Plymouth went off the road to the left and into the median. The truck rolled over and crashed. The three occupants of the vehicle, all not wearing safety belts at the time, were ejected, state police said.
The driver, a 30-year-old man from Peabody, and one passenger, a 24-year-old from Revere, were transported to Tobey Hospital in Wareham for serious injuries. The other passenger, a 47-year-old man from North Reading, was declared dead at the scene, state police said.
Members of the Bourne Fire Department and the Bourne Police Department assisted state police at the scene, along with Plymouth Fire Department and Wareham fire and police departments. State police said that the crash remains under investigation. It is believed that a tire lost air, which may have contributed to the crash, state police said.
No charges have been filed at this time.
The passenger who died in the crash has been identified as Timothy Feeley, 47, of North Reading.
