According to a statement from the Massachusetts State Police, authorities are investigating a deadly three-car accident that occurred on Sunday at 2:17 a.m. on Interstate 93 northbound near Exit 40 in Andover.
The Massachusetts State Police report that a 2014 Toyota Sienna driven by a 52-year-old Lawrence man collided with a 2011 Honda Accord driven by a 32-year-old Malden woman while driving southbound on Interstate 93 on Sunday. The collision occurred on Sunday afternoon.
Authorities claim that the first accident caused both vehicles to lose control and drive over the right shoulder into the trees, while the Sienna became immobilized in the center of the highway's main traffic lane.
According to the statement, a 2010 Toyota Corolla, driven by a 64-year-old man from Manchester, New Hampshire, collided with the Sienna before coming to a stop.
The driver of the Corolla, according to police, died at the scene.
A statement from police said that the driver of the Honda Accord was severely wounded in the collision and was sent to Lawrence General Hospital.
Following the crash, two passengers, both from Lawrence, aged 28 and 45, were transported to Lawrence General Hospital for treatment of minor injuries, according to a statement released by the city.
The operator of the Sienna, according to the police, was not hurt. Until his next of kin has been informed, the guy from Manchester's identity will not be published.
For about three and a half hours, the southbound left two traffic lanes were blocked to allow for scene reconstruction and cleaning, according to authorities. The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
