Preliminary investigation by Trooper Jason Morse indicates that 21-year-old Bruce Bilotta of Randolph was operating a 2005 Ford pick-up on Route 95 North in the middle lane when he attempted to pass another vehicle traveling in that lane. The Ford turned into the right lane where it collided into the rear of a 2008 Chrysler 300 that was operated by 27-Year-old Lionel Avila of Boston. Both vehicles spun off the right shoulder of the road where they came to rest. Bilotta and the two passengers in his vehicle, 20-year-old Gelson R. Goncalves and 21-year-old Decue A. King both of Randolph, were not wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash. Bilotta and Gelson were uninjured in the crash but Goncalves did receive minor injuries and was transported by ambulance to Norwood Hospital. Avila was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. He received serious injuries during the crash and was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Medical Examiner. The passenger in his vehicle 26-year-old Kejaun T. Carney of Mattapan was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash and he suffered a serious head injury. While Good Samaritans were rendering aid to others individuals involved in the crash Carney entered a 2008 Dodge sedan that belonged to one of the Good Samaritans and left the Crash scene. Troopers assigned to the State Police Barracks in Milton later located the Dodge on Woodbole Avenue in Mattapan. The Dodge was undamaged and they determined that Carney was transported to Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston by ambulance for treatment of his head injury.
