RAYNHAM, Mass. (WPRI) — A 1-year-old child was rushed to the hospital, and four others were injured following a crash on Route 24 in Raynham Thursday night.

Massachusetts State Police say a Volvo Sedan, driven by a 17-year-old boy from Taunton, rear-ended a Toyota Sienna, driven by a 28-year-old Fall River woman, around 9:40 p.m. just before the Route 44 exit causing both vehicles to spin out of control.

A preliminary investigation suggests the Sienna changed lanes due to construction closing a lane ahead, state police said.

The infant in the minivan was transported to a Boston Children’s Hospital with serious injuries. A 3-year-old child, a 28-year-old woman, and a 40-year-old man also in the minivan were transported to Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton with minor injuries.

The 17-year-old was transported to Morton Hospital in Taunton with minor injuries.

No additional information is being released at this time and the crash remains under investigation.
