Man with ‘no pulse’ after crash given CPR, taken to hospital

Police say a man who had “no pulse” after a Westwood car crash Monday night was taken to the hospital with serious injuries after a police sergeant gave him CPR at the scene.

The 33-year-old Westwood man was driving an Odyssey northbound on I-95 at 9:35 p.m. when he struck a Honda CRV from behind, according to Massachusetts State Police. Both cars then struck the guardrail. The two-car accident happened north of University Avenue.

The driver of the Odyssey “reportedly had no pulse at the scene,” according to State Police. Sergeant Pardo Montago immediately began performing CPR on the man and continued until Westwood EMS arrived, said police. The man was then taken to Norwood Hospital for serious injuries.


The driver of the Honda CRV, a 55 year-old woman, and a passenger in the Odyssey, a 53-year-old man, were both taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and treated for minor injuries.

Police are investigating the crash.
