At approximately 8:20 p.m., troopers from the State Police – Milton Barracks received reports of a mattress in the roadway and a vehicle off the road, on Route 24 Northbound, just north of Exit 20 in Randolph.
Troopers responded and removed a mattress from the highway. They subsequently found a sedan that had gone off the roadway and struck a tree. The driver, and only occupant, was determined to be deceased on scene as a result of injuries sustained in the crash.
The driver is a male, estimated to be in his mid-30’s. Identification is still being made at this time. Information on identification will be released tomorrow once next-of-kin are notified.
This is still an active scene, crash investigation and reconstruction are ongoing. It is unclear at this time, if the mattress on the roadway was a contributing factor to the crash.
There are no lane closures as of now. The crash is not impacting traffic.
The remaining facts and circumstances remain under investigation by troopers assigned to the State Police Milton Barracks, Troop H Headquarters, State Police Detective Unit assigned to Norfolk County District Attorney’s Office, State Police Crime Scene Services Section (CSSS), State Police Collision Analysis Reconstruction Section (CARS), Randolph Fire & EMS Departments, and the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MA DOT) all assisted on scene.
No further information is currently available. Please do not contact the barracks directly.
