“Airbags went off, the door swung open, and he was in a daze almost like somebody had punched him, almost like a concussion sort of thing, and then he just fell to the ground,” described a man who lives near the scene.
A passenger jumped out and attempted to perform CPR on the fallen driver.
The man was transported to Lowell General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
