Holbrook Police Investigating Fatal Motor Vehicle Crash
HOLBROOK — Chief William Smith reports that the Holbrook Police Department is investigating a fatal motor vehicle crash that occurred early this morning.
At approximately 4:30 a.m., police received a report of a car crash in the area of 69 Abington Ave.
Upon arrival, Holbrook Police and Fire found that a 2005 Toyota Camry had crashed into the roof of a house on Kingsley Street.
First responders used the Jaws of Life to extricate Nicole Ricci, age 20, of Stoughton, who was a passenger in the vehicle. She was transported via ambulance to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries and was later pronounced dead.
The two other occupants of the car, a 19-year-old male from Holbrook and a 21-year-old male from Holbrook, were transported to an area hospital with serious injuries.
An on scene investigation indicates that the vehicle was traveling westbound on Route 139 when it sideswiped a telephone pole, causing it to go airborne and eventually crash into the roof of the home on Kingsley Street. The home, which sustained serious structural damage, was unoccupied at the time of the incident.
The crash remains under investigation by the Holbrook Police Department, Massachusetts State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section and the State Police Crime Scene Services Section, however, police believe that speed played a factor.
