Driver killed, passenger hurt in apparent hit-and-run Worcester crash


WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — A 50-year-old man was killed and an 18-year-old lady was injured Friday night throughout what seems to have been a hit-and-run crash on a Massachusetts freeway, state police stated Saturday.

The crash occurred on I-290 Friday night. State police say the 2 had been driving in a Jeep Wrangler onto the interchange ramp to Interstate 190 when their automobile went over a barrier on the overpass and landed on I-290 under.

The driver, who police haven’t but recognized, died on the scene. The passenger suffered minor accidents.

Police say their preliminary investigation suggests a second automobile could have been concerned within the crash.

They’re looking for any data from different motorists who could have witnessed the crash, which closed a part of I-290 for about three hours Friday night time.
