The State's Most Dangerous Road
Massachusetts Route 24 is often referred to as the most dangerous road in the state, and it's clear why. In the past week there have been four major car accidents resulting in three deaths and several hospitalizations; Sunday morning's wreck was so devastating that a grief counselor was sent to help the firefighters who responded to the call deal with the trauma of what they had witnessed. What isn't clear is why it's so dangerous. What about the road's construction causes these accidents and how can it be fixed?
