State police in Massachusetts said a man in his thirties di*d in a collision on Route 24 in Avon. According to the authorities, a man from Massachusetts was ki!!ed after his car collided with a big truck early on Saturday morning on Route 24.
A collision on Route 24 South in Avon just before 2:25 a.m. claimed the life of Richard Maurice, who was 30 years old and from Randolph, as the state police identified the victim.
The investigation had led authorities to think that Maurice was behind the wheel of his 2020 Toyota Camry when it rear-ended a 2018 Freightliner that was not towing a trailer at the time of the crash.
According to the state police, Maurice’s vehicle left the roadway after the impact and proceeded into the median, where it caught fire. The semi-truck lost control and crashed into the guardrail after drifting to the right side of the highway, as covered by WCVB-Boston.
