Motor Vehicle CRASH Report
Narrative
By Sergeant Stephen E Kelly 2197
On 11/2/11 at approximately 0526 hrs., Tpr Matthew Braga # 3392 of SP Holden was dispatched to areport of a 1 vehicle crash on Rte 190SB South of Exit 6 at the 11.6 mile marker in the town of Sterling,MA. Upon his arrival, he observed a heavily damaged Vehicle 1, an unmarked State Police cruiserassigned to Lt. Governor Timothy P. MURRAY, Operator 1 and the sole occupant of same at the time of this crash. Tpr Braga assisted MURRAY, calling for EMS to evaluate him for any injuries which he mayhave sustained in the crash. Sterling EMS responded to the scene and evaluated MURRAY, at which timeMURRAY signed a refusal for medical treatment on scene.At approximately 0550 hrs., SCO Lt Keenan contacted this officer by telephone, and assigned thisofficer to also respond to the scene and investigate the crash as a Type 2 Cruiser Crash. This officerresponded to the scene, and almost immediately upon exiting my cruiser in the breakdown lane nearly felldue to icy road conditions in the area of the crash. Sterling Fire Dept., Sterling PD, and Tpr Braga werealready on scene upon my arrival, all parked in the breakdown lane. Lt Governor MURRAY was seatedinside Tpr Braga's cruiser for warmth, and this officer interviewed him briefly. MURRAY stated that hewas driving
Vehicle
1 Southbound in the right travel lane (2 lanes in this section) within the posted 65 mphspeed limit, when he lost control of 
Vehicle
1 due to the slippery, icy road conditions. MURRAY wasunable to bring the vehicle under control with either brakes or steering due to the black ice. This caused
Vehicle
1 to careen off the highway over the breakdown lane, through the snow covered shoulder and intothe rock ledge running parallel to the highway there, continuing South along this ledge before Vehicle 1overturned an unknown number of times. Vehicle 1 came to final rest in an upright position approximately525 feet from the point where it first traveled off the breakdown lane onto the snowy shoulder.
Vehicle
1was totalled (with the brunt of the damage to the entire passenger's side) and airbags appeared deployed,with debris from the vehicle strewn along the shoulder of the roadway. While on scene conducting theinvestigation, there was nearly another crash in the left travel lane due to the poor road conditions. MassD.O.T. was contacted by SP Holden and advised to treat this area of the highway with sand. As a result of my investigation, this officer determined that the cause of this crash was due to poor road conditionspresent at the time of the crash, and therefore no charges will be filed against Operator 1.Lt Governor MURRAY was then provided a courtesy transport to his residence by Tpr Braga. Therewere some visible small cuts to MURRAY's hands that I observed. Tpr Colleen Tanguay of CSSS alsoresponded to the scene and took photos of the crash scene. When the investigation was completed,Cranston's Towing removed
Vehicle
1 and brought it to CHQ
