Passenger dies in Dedham after car is submerged in ‘several feet of water’

A male passenger died early Saturday morning following a rollover crash in Dedham that ended with the driver’s car submerged “upside down in several feet of water,” according to a statement by the Massachusetts State Police.

State troopers responded to the crash at approximately 4:20 a.m. Saturday morning on Interstate 95 northbound at the University Avenue exit when they found the vehicle, a Toyota RAV4.

The car “rolled over into a flooded gully on the infield between the roadway and the ramp,” according to the statement, when it rested upside down in the water.

Multiple troopers entered the water and freed the two male victims from the car, which was completely submerged by that point. They then performed emergency medical aid in an attempt to save the victims’ lives.

The passenger was transported to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced deceased. The driver was also transported, and had sustained “serious injuries.” No further update is available yet on the man’s condition or other identifying information about the men.
