Boston, MA – March 1st may be just days away, but there are little signs of spring in Massachusetts. On the contrary, weather forecasts indicate potential winter storms throughout the week. This means dangerous road conditions in the Boston area, similar to those last week when 15 trucks and cars were involved in a chain accident on the Massachusetts Turnpike. Several people were taken to the hospital, some of them in serious condition. According to Massachusetts State Police, the crash was most likely caused by the freezing rain that made for very treacherous driving conditions. Speed restrictions were implemented from the New York border all the way to Boston during the storm.
Although it’s been almost one week since the accident, the investigation continues. If you’re ever involved in a multiple-vehicle accident you need to wait for the police report and then contact seasoned Boston accident lawyers. Recovering damages for this type of crash is extremely tricky as more than one party may be liable for damages.
