Massachusetts State Police are reportedly investigating a series of crashes that killed a 21-year-old Taunton woman on Route 24 South Sunday (December 6) night in West Bridgewater.
Police said the woman was driving southbound in a Toyota Camry and struck a median barrier, coming to a rest in the center late at around 9:30 p.m., WCVB reports. The woman then exited her vehicle to check for damages and was struck by a Jeep Liberty being driven by a 24-year-old Braintree woman.
The Jeep was then struck by a Nissan Altima driven by a 47-year-old Bridgewater man, causing the SUV to roll over and strike into a 2005 Audi A6 driven by a 30-year-old Brockton man.
The 21-year-old woman who was struck while outside of her vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene, while the drivers of the Audi and Nissan were not injured, WCVB reports.
The driver of the Jeep was reportedly transported to Good Samaritan Hospital and treated for minor injuries, police confirmed to WCVB.
Route 24 Southbound was shutdown for several hours while authorities worked to clear the scene.
Massachusetts State Police are continuing to investigate the multi-vehicle fatal crash as of Tuesday (December 8) afternoon. No additional information is available at this time.
