March 7, 2011 – Michael Kaminski, 60, from Oxford, Massachusetts, and Adam Richard, 34, of Hudson, have died as a result of serious personal injuries sustained in a four vehicle accident in Marlborough. Richard Delisle, 62, from Palmer, was driving one of the other vehicles but was not injured in the crash. Robert Murner, the fourth driver and his passenger Christine Murner, both 48 and from Wilbraham, were also not injured in the accident.
The crash occurred on Route 85 in Marlborough on Friday morning. According to the Massachusetts State Police, Richard lost control of his car causing him to cross the center line into oncoming traffic. Richard’s vehicle clipped the rear end of Delisle’s box truck and then collided head on with Kaminski’s Ford Taurus. Mr. Murner was unable to stop and smashed into the back of the Taurus.
Richard was unfortunately pronounced dead at the scene. Kaminski was transported to Marlborough Hospital, where he later died. Police stated that Richard was not wearing a seat belt, but are unsure at this time if Kaminski was wearing a seat belt.
