BROCKTON (CBS) – Plymouth District Attorney Timothy Cruz said two people were killed early Sunday morning when a car slammed into their car in Brockton. It happened around 3 a.m. on Route 27 in the area of Route 24.
Officials initially believed a 30-year-old woman was driving the wrong way on Route 27 right before the crash. Brockton Deputy Fire Chief Brian Nardelli later said that was not the case, but the impact of the crash caused the car to spin.
That 30-year-old woman suffered life-threatening injuries after crashing a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe with two women inside. She was taken to Good Samaritan, then transferred to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston with life-threatening injuries.
A 2000 Chevy Tahoe crashed into the Jetta after the initial impact, but the man who was driving was not hurt.
The passenger in the Santa Fe, a 39-year-old woman, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver, a 66-year-old woman, was rushed to Good Samaritan Hospital but did not survive.
“Two sets of jaws of life, a ram put into service to actually cut them out, it was an extensive operation just to get them out of the vehicle,” said Nardelli.
The District Attorney’s office has not released identifications for those involved in the crash.
