Excessive speed may be to blame for a crash that injured four people in East Bridgewater, Massachusetts, on Monday morning.
Police responded to the crash outside of 611 North Bedford St. at 11:46 a.m. where a vehicle had apparently struck four other vehicles before striking trees and a stone wall. Authorities said the driver, Richard Chermesino, 29, of Wast Bridgewater, then hit a house and a fifth parked car in the driveway — before coming to a rest.
Chermesino was taken to South Shore Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
