On Sunday afternoon, at about 2 pm, the police responded to a multi-vehicle crash near 895 Hammond Street in Brookline. They found 3 vehicles involved in the accident. There were a lot of people injured in the crash.
One of the cars was driven by 85-year old Judith Spencer of West Roxbury. She had been driving her daughter and granddaughter. Her daughter was in the front passenger seat and her granddaughter was in the backseat.
At the same time, a 65-year old Brookline man was driving along Hammond Street. For some reason, he lost control of his car and crashed into Spencer’s car head-on. He also hit a second car. This second car had 5 people inside it.
Judith Spencer was rushed to Beth Israel Deaconness Medical Center in Boston. She was treated for her injuries but died shortly after arriving. Her daughter and granddaughter were also taken to Beth Israel and were treated for their injuries. They have since been released.
The names of her daughter and granddaughter have not yet been released. And the family had not yet made a statement.
The 65-year old driver who caused the crash was also taken to Beth Israel where he is listed as being in stable condition. All 5 of the occupants of the third car were taken to the hospital. The two adults were taken to Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The two children – aged 8 and 10 – were taken to Boston Children’s Hospital. They were all treated and summarily released.
