CANTON, Mass. (WWLP) – A 17-year old boy was killed in a multi-car crash on Route 93, according to Massachusetts State Police spokesman Dave Procopio.

The police arrived around 10:30 p.m. at Route 93 southbound in the area of Exit 2B.

The crash involved a 2012 Jeep Wrangler driven by a 17-year-old boy and a 2011 Toyota Corolla driven by a 28-year-old woman.

The crash resulted in the death of the 17-year-old, while other passengers suffered only minor injuries.

The investigation so far indicates that while traveling southbound on Route 93, the Jeep’s driver, attempted to cross multiple lanes to take Exit 2B but the Jeep struck the Toyota on the ramp.

The impact pushed the Toyota into the wood line and caused the Jeep to roll over across the ramp and into the nearest field. 

The 17-year-old boy from Natick, was ejected from the rear-seat passenger in the Jeep.

The ambulance took him to Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton, where he was pronounced dead.

All of the other passengers were also taken to area hospitals for observation or treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. 

The Massachusetts State Police is still investigating the facts and circumstances of the crash.
