Pembroke man injured in wrong way crash

A Pembroke man was among the injured in a multiple car crash, when a Lynn woman drove the wrong way at 1 a.m. on Rte. 93 South in Quincy Monday morning.

Pat Ford, 36, of Pembroke, was driving a 2008 Suzuki motorcycle when he was struck by other vehicles in the crash, according to Massachusetts State Police Sgt. Matthew Murray.

Ford was transported to Brigham and Womens Hospital for treatment of serious injuries. A hospital representative said Wednesday he remains in serious condition.

Ford’s foot was shattered during the accident and he was scheduled for surgery at Brigham And Women’s Hospital Wednesday, according to Donna Cannone, a friend of the family.

“He needs thoughts and prayers,” Cannone said. “Pat and Elena Ford (his wife) have been huge supporters of the community, this is a young couple and they need support. Everyone keep them in their thoughts and prayers.”

Ford co-owned Sweet Fordy’s, a Pembroke bakery that he opened in 2006, and closed in April.

Cannone said she became familiar with the Ford family through her work with the Friends of the Pembroke Skatepark, and at the Ford’s bakery.

The Fords donated proceeds from a cookie contest, The Dark Side Grind Cookie, to help raise funds to create a skate park in Pembroke.

“They were huge supporters of it,” Cannone said.

The driver, Anna Missakiane, 26, of Lynn, was heading north in Quincy in the breakdown lane when the four-car accident occurred.

Murray said Monday three people were injured, including Missakiane. Murray said as he’s not aware of any charges brought against her this week, though an investigation is ongoing.

Missakiane’s 2011 Dodge Avenger first hit the vehicle of Faith Jorge, 33, of Taunton, causing Ford’s motorcycle and a 2001 Mercedes ML320 driven by Toljan Mico, 20, of Quincy, to become involved.

Missakiane was trapped in her vehicle during the accident but was extricated by members of the Boston Fire Department. She and Jorge were transported to Boston Medical Center for treatment for serious injuries.

Murray said the state police Collision Analysis Reconstruction Section is taking measurements at the crash site, interviewing witnesses and examining evidence. They plan to create a report, and Murray said usually charges, if any, are only taken out after a report is submitted. This would take several weeks, he said.
