Two women were killed early Sunday morning in a head-on crash on the Jamaicaway, according to Massachusetts State Police.
The accident happened shortly before 3 a.m. Sunday when a BMW 530XI carrying three occupants struck a Toyota Camry carrying two on the Jamaicaway at Perkins St. in Jamaica Plain. According to the initial investigation, the BMW crossed the center-lane markers into the oncoming Toyota.
Two passengers from the BMW, a 44-year-old Everett woman and a 33-year-old Revere woman, were pronounced dead at the scene. The victims’ names were not released. Police said they were not wearing seat belts, and this was determined to be a factor in their deaths.
WCVB reports that the driver of the BMW, Jennifer Guzman, 26, of Hyde Park, and the driver of the Toyota, Cesar Viasus, 36, of Roslindale, suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Both were transported to Beth Israel Hospital, along with the Toyota’s passenger, who is in critical condition and has not been identified.
The Jamaicaway was reopened at 6:35 a.m.
