Rollover Accident in Plymouth - Faulty Road Construction?
State Police closed Route 3 northbound between exits 5 and 6 in Plymouth yesterday afternoon due to a rollover accident. The single vehicle car accident ioccured at a section of the road that has been under construction as part of a repaving project. Plymouth Police Capt. John Rogers said the female driver was transported to Jordan Hospital and then Medflighted to a hospital in Boston.
That stretch of highway has been left unfinished for over two weeks now. It was only a matter of time before an unsuspecting motorcyclist or passengers in a vehicle attempting to switch lanes ended up getting seriously injured. My thoughts and prayers go out to this young lady and her family for a full and speedy recovery. I sure do hope the State Police accident reconstruction team did a thorough investigation and documented the perilous condition left by highway construction workers.
