State Police Investigate Serious Crash on Route 146 South in Uxbridge
Preliminary investigation by Trooper Edward Powers indicates that 60-year-old Donald Garron of Uxbridge was operating a 2005 Nissan Titan Pickup on Route 146 South in Uxbridge when his vehicle drifted off the road to the left and entered the median. After entering the median, the Nissan lost control, reentered the roadway, crossed over the left travel lane and entered the right travel lane where it collided into the rear of a 2007 Subaru Impreza operated by 43-year-old Duan Ou of Northborough. After the collision, both vehicles exited the road to the right, rolled over, crashed through a fence and came to rest in the woods. Ou sustained minor injuries in the crash and was transported by ambulance to UMass Memorial University Campus in Worcester. Garron, who was not wearing his safety belt, was ejected from his vehicle during the crash and was taken by medical helicopter to UMass Memorial University Campus in Worcester with serious injuries. The passenger in the Subaru, 18-year-old Xuantong Li of Northborough was also not wearing his safety belt and was ejected from the vehicle during the crash. Li sustained serious injuries and was transported by medical helicopter to UMass Memorial University Campus in Worcester.
Although this crash remains under investigation with the assistance of the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section and the State Police Crime Scene Services Section, it appears that speed was a factor. The Uxbridge Fire Department, Uxbridge Police Department, LifeFlight and MassHighway assisted Troopers at the scene.
Due to the investigation and vehicle removal, the right lane of Route 146 South was closed for over 2 hours.
