Police: 2 dead following pair of highway crashes in Attleboro

SE Mass

ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WPRI) — Police are investigating after a pair of crashes led to the death of two people on I-95 in Attleboro Monday night.

Massachusetts State Police said they received calls for both crashes at “roughly the same time.”

A spokesperson for Massachusetts State Police said troopers responded to the first scene along I-95 South near Exit 1 for reports of a body in the roadway.

Police said the victim was a pedestrian who was fatally struck by an oncoming vehicle, though no vehicle remained on scene.

Troopers are working to determine a vehicle description of the car that hit the victim.

Moments later, police were called to the second crash approximately seven miles away.

Troopers responded to I-95 North near Exit 5 where a vehicle went off the highway and rolled over into the woods.

Police said an occupant of that vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene.

It’s unclear at this time if the two crashes are connected. Police have not released the identities of either victim.
