State Police Investigating Fatal Crash in Randolph

This morning at approximately 10:13 a.m., a State Police Sergeant working a detail reported a roll over crash. Troopers assigned to State Police-Milton responded to the single vehicle crash, involving a 2004 Mercedes Benz E320 on Route 24 southbound prior to Exit 20 in Randolph.

Preliminary investigation shows the Mercedes was traveling on Route 24 southbound when, for reasons still under investigation, the Mercedes left the roadway to the right side, striking the guardrail and then going airborne. The Mercedes rolled over when it hit the ground. The operator, a 23-year-old male from Stoughton, was ejected from the vehicle. Medical treatment was given at the scene and the operator was transported to the Good Samaritan Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash and the operator was the sole occupant of the Mercedes. Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash. The operator was not wearing a seat belt.

The operator’s identity is not being released at this time.

The crash remains under investigation by Troop H of the Massachusetts State Police along with the Collision Analysis Reconstruction Section and Crime Scene Services Section. Randolph Fire, and Mass DOT, assisted at the scene.
