Two women involved in a two-vehicle crash on the Brockton-Abington line Tuesday have died of their injuries, police said.
The driver of a 2009 Toyota Camry, who police identified as 76-year-old Kathryn Cushman, of Holbrook, was flown by medical helicopter to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston following the crash Tuesday afternoon.
Cushman was pronounced dead at the hospital, Brockton police Lt. Paul Bonanca said Wednesday.
Betty Marini, 75, of Abington, a passenger in Cushman’s vehicle, who was taken to South Shore Hospital in South Weymouth, has also died, police said.
Two others are injured.
A third passenger, who police identified as Robert Cushman, 79, also of Holbrook, suffered unknown injuries, police said.
Police say the driver of a 2006 Ford VHS transportation van, identified as Timothy Dearth, 44, of Brockton, was taken to Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital with minor injuries.
The two vehicles collided at about 1:49 p.m. Tuesday at the corner of North Quincy Street and Boundary Avenue – a problem intersection where at least one neighbor has been fighting to put up a traffic light.
“There’s no excuse for this to continue,” Sarah Killeffer, a neighbor and mother of six, told The Enterprise Tuesday.
“There’s really no excuse that two towns can’t work together and get a light put up,” she added. “This isn’t right.”
Police said no one has been cited in the crash, and declined to comment on how fast either car was traveling or which direction each car was driving.
“We’ll wait for the accident reconstruction report to assess charges,” Bonanca said.
The crash remains under investigation by state police accident reconstruction team.
Police released the information late Wednesday night.
