The Boston Globe reports that a construction worker was pronounced dead yesterday at the scene of an accident on Route 3 in Chelmsford. A driver hit two men at a cleanup site along the northbound lanes. The workmen were part of a crew cleaning up a fuel spill that occurred last week.
In addition to one fatality, another worker was seriously injured and the driver suffered serious injuries in the auto accident. The worker was taken by medical helicopter to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, and the driver was transported to Lahey Clinic in Burlington. In order for the medical helicopter to land, authorities closed the road in both directions. They reopened the southbound lanes at 11:15am.
The names of the car accident victims were not released by Massachusetts police.
