EVERETT (WBZ-AM) -- Two people were killed in a crash between a City of Everett garbage truck and a pickup, Everett Police confirmed to WBZ NewsRadio 1030--and one more person is fighting for their life.
The crash happened around 8:39 a.m. Wednesday in the area of Broadway and Dunster Road.
The impact was so strong that the tail-end of the white pickup broke off and landed in the middle of the road, while the cabin landed on the sidewalk against some bushes.
The Middlesex District Attorney's office said a man and woman who were passengers in the pickup truck were taken to a local hospital, where they were pronounced dead.
They have not yet been identified.
The drivers of both trucks were transported--the trash truck driver suffered non-life-threatening injuries, while the pickup driver suffered serious injuries.
They said that a section of Broadway between Cameron and Kenwood Streets would be closed for an extended period of time, and asked the public to seek alternate routes.
The Middlesex DA said no criminal charges have been filed, and that they are investigating along with Everett and State Police.
