1 Killed, 2 Injured in Accident in Quincy After Suspect Fled From Traffic Stop

Massachusetts State Police responded Monday night to the scene of a fatal accident in Quincy.

A call came in for a crash on Quincy Shore Drive around 9:15 p.m. Monday.

Police say the motorist who caused the crash fled from a trooper who had pulled him over moments earlier for motor vehicle violations.

Just before 9 p.m., a trooper had taken the suspect's information and was processing the motor vehicle stop when the suspect suddenly drove away at a high rate of speed. The trooper did not engage in a pursuit but did follow in the same direction.

Shortly after, the trooper came across the crash on Quincy Shore Drive in the area of Caddy Memorial Park.

A preliminary investigation reveals that the speeding suspect sideswiped one car and then crashed into another before impacting and rolling over the sea wall.

The suspect's vehicle is on the beach and will be removed by a rotator wrecker.

The suspect, identified Tuesday morning as 50-year-old Quincy resident Peter J. Boylan who fled the motor vehicle stop, was pronounced dead on scene.

A 27-year-old woman who was a passenger in Boylan's car was ejected from the car and was transported to Boston Medical Center.

A 36-yea-old man driving of one of the cars struck by the suspect was also taken to Boston Medical Center.

Both of the victims' injuries are believed to be non-life threatening.

The operator of the car that was sideswiped was not injured.

The crash remains under investigation.
