Car Goes Airborne Near Tobin Bridge During Friday Rush Hour

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Police are investigating what caused a vehicle to go airborne and crash near the Tobin Bridge during Friday's rush hour in Boston.

Troopers from the Massachusetts State Police Tunnels Barracks responded to the ramp that connects Route 1/Tobin Bridge to Route 93 for a report of a serious crash Friday shortly after 5:30 p.m.

According to MSP, an initial investigation found a 2013 Toyota Scion coupe had struck a guardrail on Route 93 southbound, flipped over it, and landed approximately 25 feet below onto the Cana Loop. The Scion sustained extensive damage and was towed away.

Troopers found the driver, a 19-year-old Lynnfield man, standing outside the crashed car. He was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital with potentially serious injuries.

Police said the investigation into the crash, including what caused the driver to strike the guardrail on Route 93, is ongoing, and numerous witnesses have been interviewed.

The scene was cleared and all lanes of the ramp had been reopened by 8:20 p.m. MSP said no other vehicles were impacted in the crash.
