Car accident kills Massachusetts motorist on Route 495

A Carver man was killed in an accident on Route 495 Thursday night.

Two vehicles were traveling southbound, north of Exit 2 on Route 495 when, around 11:10 p.m., a 2004 Ford F-250 left the road and come in contact with a tree, according to a preliminary investigation by State Police Trooper Adam LeBlanc.

The operator, George Victoria, 50, of Carver was pronounced dead at the scene.

A second vehicle was also involved, but its role in the crash is unclear and is part of the ongoing investigation, police said.

The operator of the second vehicle, a 51-year-old Westborough man, was transported to Tobey Hospital in Wareham with non-life threatening injuries.

The crash remains under investigation by Troop D of the Massachusetts State Police with the assistance of the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section and the State Police Crime Scene Services Section.

Troopers were assisted at the scene by the Middleborough Fire Department and the Massachusetts Department of Transportation.

The left lane of Route 495 southbound was closed for approximately 2 ½ hours during the rescue operation and crash investigation.

In general, when a fatality results from the negligent or intentional acts of another, a wrongful death claim may result. A wrongful death suit allows surviving members to recover compensation for funeral and burial expenses, as well as compensation for pain and suffering.
