Massachusetts State Police respond to fatal crash that claims life of 16-year old


At 10:15 PM Monday, the State Police-Sturbridge Barracks received a report of a single-vehicle crash on Route 84 eastbound in Sturbridge. Responding Troopers found the driver and sole occupant entrapped in the vehicle. Sturbridge firefighters and EMS also responded and determined the victim to be deceased from injuries suffered in the crash.

The driver and sole vehicle occupant in this crash was a 16-year-old Newton boy. He was operating a 2014 Subaru Forester.

Preliminary investigation indicates that, for reasons still to be determined, the Subaru was travelling eastbound on Route 84 in Sturbridge at 10:15 PM when it veered to its right, struck the guardrail along the southern edge of the road, then traveled back to the left across all three travel lanes, and went off the northern edge of the road. The vehicle then traveled down an embankment and struck several trees.

The facts and circumstances of the crash remain under investigation by the State Police-Sturbridge Barracks with assistance from the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section and the State Police Crime Scene Services Section.
