Fatal Plymouth Crash Takes Life of Bridgewater Man
Massachusetts State Police are investigating after a Sunday afternoon crash in Plymouth took the life of a Bridgewater man.
At approximately 2:15 p.m., emergency workers responded to reports of a crash with injuries on Route 44 eastbound west of Route 3 in Plymouth. State troopers were joined by the Plymouth Fire Department and EMS. Troopers say they observed a 2003 Pontiac Montana minivan that had been involved in a collision with a 2007 Dodge Ram towing a utility trailer.
The driver of the Pontiac, Reynold Cullman, 70, of Bridgewater, sustained serious injuries in the crash. He was transported to Beth Israel Hospital in Plymouth where he died of his injuries. A 59-year-old man driving the Dodge was not injured.
Preliminary investigation shows the Pontiac was traveling Route 44 westbound when, for reasons that remain under investigation, the vehicle crossed the center median and entered the eastbound lanes. The Pontiac struck the trailer being towed by the Dodge then crashed into a concrete barrier.
The crash remains under investigation by Troop D of the Massachusetts State Police along with the Collision Analysis Reconstruction Section, Crime Scene Services Section, and the Plymouth County State Police Detective Unit. Troopers were assisted on scene by MassDOT.
