Mass. man injured in Bedford crash
BEDFORD - An Ashland, Mass., man suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries Wednesday night when he rolled his 2005 Acura RSX on the on-ramp from Route 101 East to Interstate 293 North.
Police said John Brennan, 44, was taken to the Elliot Hospital in Manchester for treatment of his injuries.
The crash, which happened at 8:05 p.m., destroyed the gray Acura, according to state police.
A preliminary investigation indicates the crash happened when Brennan, traveling north on the F.E. Everett Turnpike, took the ramp to I-293 South. State police said the car was traveling too fast for the ramp's turn and it crossed over the center median and rolled over onto the ramp from Route 101 East to I-293 North.
The ramp from Route 101 East to I-293 was temporarily closed while the collision was investigated and the wreckage cleared.
State police said neither alcohol nor drugs is suspected in the crash, which remains under investigation by Trooper Christopher Cummings of Troop B. Anyone with information is asked to call Cummings at 603-666-3333.
