Hanover: Four-car crash claims man’s life and seriously injures two women

One man is dead and two women have been injured in a four-car collision in Hanover late Monday afternoon.

The crash was reported just before 6:00 p.m. near 817 Circuit St., not far from the Route 139 intersection in West Hanover Square.

Authorities say the death and the two injuries were from a two-car crash, while the other two vehicles were apparently hit just before that accident happened.

96 year old Robert Dill, the driver of a Lincoln, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The female driver and her passenger, in a Chevrolet Suburban that was hit by the Lincoln, were taken by ambulance to South Shore Hospital with what police described as serious injuries. Police say Dill somehow lost control of his Lincoln on Circuit Street near Route 139 and West Hanover Square, just before 6, sideswiped two cars, and headed into the oncoming lane where he crashed head-on into the Suburban.

The names of the two women who were injured were not released.

No one in the other two vehicles required medical treatment at the scene.

The accident remains under investigation.

 

About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
