Raynham Police Investigate Multi-Vehicle Crash


RAYNHAM, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Raynham Police Department is investigating a three-vehicle crash that put two people in the hospital on Saturday evening.

According to RPD, responding officers arrived at 228 Pleasant Street at around 6 p.m., where they found two crashed cars and two people laying on the ground next to a motorcycle.

After a preliminary investigation, police said a 56-year-old woman in a Nissan Pathfinder appeared to have been stopped on Pleasant Street waiting to turn into a driveway, when she was struck from behind by a Ford Fusion.

The impact of the crash caused the 19-year-old woman in the Ford Fusion to then veer across the double yellow line, where she struck an oncoming motorcycle.

The motorcycle driver, a 47-year-old man from Raynham, was taken via medical helicopter to Rhode Island Hospital. His passenger, a 45-year-old woman also from Raynham, was taken by ambulance to Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton. Both are expected to survive.

The drivers of both cars were evaluated by emergency medical services personnel and declined transportation to hospitals. The roadway was closed in both directions for accident reconstruction teams, but it reopened at around 7:30 p.m.

There were no charges or citations announced in connection with the crash.
