Bedford man killed in Route 123 head-on in Norwell

A Bedford, Massachusetts, man was killed in a head-on crash Tuesday morning in Norwell. The wreck was first reported at around 8:45 in the morning. Emergency responders were on scene quickly, according to the Norwell Fire Chief. The Bedford man was trapped inside the crumpled vehicle.

Police say that the 51-year-old Bedford resident was traveling east on Main Street in Norwell when his Buick Lacrosse and the woman's Mercedes sport utility vehicle collided head on. The force of the impact trapped the man inside the Lacrosse-- first responders needed to call in extra assistance during the accident response. The man was pronounced dead at the scene of the Route 123 head-on wreck.

Meanwhile, crews were able to rescue a 47-year-old Marshfield woman from her Mercedes. She suffered undisclosed, but non-life-threatening injuries in the collision.

Authorities are still trying to determine what may have happened in the wreck. Very few details about the accident itself are covered in a recent media account. Investigators opened a probe into the fatal accident in the aftermath of the wreck. Accident reconstructionists from the Massachusetts State Police are working the case.

Head-on wrecks can be among the most frightening of all types of crashes. While it is unclear what may have led to Tuesday morning’s tragedy, the destruction and loss of life that can come from a head-on collision is evident. Typically, head-on wrecks are more likely on rural roads, according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration. But wrong-way accidents, or wrecks involving a driver crossing the centerline, can happen on any type of road.
