A fatal vehicle accident occurred in Middleborough on Monday morning. The accident occurred on Interstate 495 when a driver that was driving a 2011 Infiniti G37 in the wrong lane of traffic struck a northbound 2003, Mercury Sable. Tragically, as a result of the collision, the five people who were in the Mercury Sable and the wrong-way driver all passed away. The accident is still being examined, and the actions of the driver of the Infiniti G37 are being looked into. Allegedly, the driver was only on the interstate for a short period of time.
Measures have been taken an effort to prevent drivers from operating their vehicles in the wrong lane of traffic. There are signs posted to inform drivers that they are driving in the wrong direction. However, it is the responsibility of the driver to know where to drive safely and to be aware of where they are operating their vehicle.
