A motorist is dead following a single-vehicle crash near American Legion Highway and Clare Avenue that reportedly split the vehicle in half.
Boston police say they were called to the scene around 5:25 p.m. Thursday. The operator was pronounced dead at the scene.
WCVB reported that part of the vehicle was resting next to a pole in the center of the street while the other half was upside down and across the street.
A witness told Drew Karedes of Boston 25 News that the victim had severe injuries to their face.
“He had some horrific facial injuries, like something I have never seen in my entire life,” the unidentified witness said.
Another witness, Anne Marie Yanulis, told NBC10 Boston the crash happened near a memorial for someone else killed along the same stretch of road.
“This is one of the most dangerous strips right here, and this proves it,” she said.
