A 7-year-old boy was killed in a car crash in Oxford Tuesday when a 79-year-old driver lost control on Interstate 395 and hit several trees, State Police said.
The boy was wearing a seat belt when the 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass veered off the interstate just north of Exit 5 at 6:30 p.m., according to a press release. He was pronounced dead at the scene. His name was not released because of his age.
The driver, Jose Rivera of Worcester, suffered serious injuries and was taken to UMass Medical Center.
Thirty minutes later, State Police responded to three vehicle crash on Interstate 290 in Worcester that killed a 51-year-old man and injured two others. Joseph Thompson was pronounced dead at the scene after the sport utility vehicle he was driving swerved into another lane near Exit 10 and rolled over.
