Saugus woman identified as victim of fatal crash in Brockton

BROCKTON — A young woman died from Saugus died and two other people were seriously injured in a car crash Tuesday night at an intersection where three people were killed in a crash in August.

The victim was identified by the Plymouth County District Attorney’s office late Wednesday afternoon as 19-year-old Kaitlyn Rastellini. The driver and front-seat passenger were expected to survive.

Police and firefighters were called to the intersection of North Quincy Street and Boundary Avenue just after 9 p.m. Tuesday, according to Brockton police.

Sgt. Tracy Harrington said at least two of the three people involved were ejected from the car. Rastellini was taken to Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital and flown to Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, where authorities said she was pronounced dead.

The other two people involved were transported to South Shore Hospital, a trauma center in Weymouth, with serious injuries.

Their names and ages were not released Wednesday.

Harrington said speed may have been a factor in the crash. The District Attorney’s office released no further information about what led to the crash.

In August, a car and van collided, killing Kathryn Cushman, 76, of Holbrook and Betty Marini, 75, of Abington. Cushman’s husband, Robert, 79, died later of his injuries.

Residents have petitioned for a traffic light at the intersection, which is located on the Abington line, and the city has agreed to do a road safety audit. It was scheduled to begin some time in October.
