An unfortunate incident occurred on Thursday in Malden, Massachusetts, resulting in the tragic loss of an elderly woman’s life. The collision involved two SUVs and happened at the intersection of Main Street and Mountain Avenue. The response from first responders was swift, emphasizing the severity of the situation.
Preliminary reports indicate that a BMW SUV traveling south on Main Street collided with another SUV at a traffic light. This impact caused the BMW to veer off course, subsequently striking two telephone poles and tragically hitting the pedestrian, who was standing on a nearby sidewalk. The collision also led to the toppling of two utility poles, adding to the chaos of the incident.
What makes this incident even more concerning is the involvement of a vehicle belonging to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Enforcement and Removal Operations. This federal vehicle was stationary at the intersection when it was struck by the BMW, which then led to the fatal collision with the pedestrian. The agency confirmed that two of its agents were injured and subsequently hospitalized due to the impact.
