At approximately 2:50 p.m. yesterday Troopers assigned to State Police-Danvers were contacted by the Danvers Police Department informing them that a patrol officer located a vehicle deep in the woodline off of the Ferncroft Rotary. The vehicle had been involved in a crash. Troopers responded, along with Danvers Fire and EMS, and discovered the operator of the vehicle to be deceased. He has been identified as Conrad Garfield, 41, of Hamilton.
Preliminary investigation reveals the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas was traveling on Route 1 northbound when, for reasons that remain unknown at this time, it left the roadway and entered the woodline crashing into several trees. The facts and circumstances of the crash, as well as the exact time that the crash occurred, remain under investigation by Troop A of the Massachusetts State Police, Crime Scene Services Section, Collision Analysis Reconstruction Section, and the Office of the Medical Examiner.
