Massachusetts State Police have identified the victim from yesterday’s fatal crash on Route 90 in Grafton as Joshua Glynn, 32 of Plymouth.  

Tuesday afternoon, at approximately 2:22 p.m., troopers from the State Police Barracks in Charlton responded to reports of a crash on Route 90 Westbound at the 98.5 mile marker in Grafton, which resulted in the death of the operator.

Preliminary investigation by Trooper Thomas Wilson indicates that a 2015 Ford Fusion was traveling on Route 90 Westbound when for reasons still under investigation it went into the breakdown lane where it struck the rear of a disabled tractor trailer which was parked in the breakdown lane.

The operator of the Ford was determined to be deceased at the scene due to injuries sustained in the crash. The operator of the tractor trailer, a 45-year-old man from Miami, Fla. suffered no injury.

The right travel lane and the breakdown lane on Route 90 Westbound were shut down while the crash was investigated.

The cause of this crash remains under investigation.

Trooper Wilson is being assisted in this investigation by the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, the State Police Crime Scene Services Section, Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Section and Worcester County DA’s Office. Also assisting on scene were members of Grafton Fire and EMS, the Medical Examiner’s Office and MA department of Transportation.
