April 20, 2010 – Ryan Smith, 21, from Amesbury, Massachusetts, has died as a result of serious personal injuries sustained when he was ejected from a car on Sunday. Corey Nason, 22, from Sanford, Maine, was driving the car, which rolled over on the ramp from Route 1 North to Route 128 in Peabody. The accident occurred around 1:30 a.m.
Apparently, Nason lost control of the 2005 Saturn Ion causing it to roll over several times before coming to a stop on the median. During the rollover, Smith was ejected from the vehicle and was unfortunately pronounced dead at the scene. Nason was trapped in the car and had to be extricated by the responding firefighters. Nason was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he is being treated for serious injuries.
According to the Massachusetts State Police, Nason was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident, while Smith was not. The cause of the accident is uncertain at this time and it remains under investigation.
