This morning at about 3:10 a.m., State Police from the Milton barracks responded to a single-vehicle rollover crash on Route 24 southbound at exit 20 in Stoughton, which resulted in two ejections, one seriously injured.

Preliminary investigation by Trooper Connor Flynn indicates that a 24-year-old Brockton woman was traveling on Route 24 southbound in a 2003 Pontiac van when, for reasons still under investigation, she lost control of the vehicle, causing it to rollover and crash. During the rollover, two occupants, a 24-year-old female and a 37-year-old female, both from Brockton, were ejected from the vehicle. Both were transported to Boston Medical Center, the former treated for serious injuries while the latter was treated for minor injuries.

There were eight total occupants in the vehicle. A 35-year-old man and a 23-year-old female, both of Brockton, were transported to Good Samaritan Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. A 32-year-old-female, and two 42-year-old males, all from Brockton, were uninjured in the crash. The driver was subsequently treated for minor injuries at Boston Medical Center.

The cause of this crash remains under investigation with assistance from the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, Crime Scene Services Section, and Troop H Detectives. No charges have been filed at this time.

State Police were assisted on scene by Stoughton Fire and EMS, Randolph EMS, and Mass DOT.
