Medford, Massachusetts Accident Leaves One Dead

October 19, 2009 – Marianne Murphy, 47 from Medford, Massachusetts, was pronounced dead after suffering serious personal injuries during a car accident on Route 93. Murphy was riding in the front passenger seat. Gerald Murphy, 48 also from Medford, was driving a 2010 Toyota, in which Mrs. Murphy was riding in the front passenger seat. The accident occurred at around 1:02 a.m. Sunday morning on Route 93 in Medford near Roosevelt Circle.

Apparently Mr. Murphy lost control of the sedan, which hit the guardrail on the right side of the highway and then traveled across all four lanes of traffic and collided with a concrete barrier. The car went back across the highway and eventually stopped in the breakdown lane.

Mrs. Murphy was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital and then transferred to Massachusetts General Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Mr. Murphy was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital and treated for serious injuries. Apparently neither was wearing a seatbelt. Two passengers that were riding in the backseats were wearing seatbelts and suffered only minor injuries.

The accident remains under investigation.
