State Police Investigating Fatal Crash Involving Taxi Driver on Soldiers Field Road in Boston


At approximately 10:30 PM on Saturday, March 23, 2024 Massachusetts State Troopers and Boston Fire and EMS responded to a single-vehicle crash off Soldiers Field Road. The operator of the Toyota Camry, which was a taxi, was transported to a hospital and pronounced deceased. A passenger in the taxi survived the crash. 


Preliminary investigation by Troopers indicates that the operator was westbound on Soldiers Field Road when, for reasons still under investigation, he lost control of the taxi in the vicinity of the Weeks Footbridge. The taxi went off the road and struck a tree on the grassy shoulder.


The Trooper who was first on scene performed CPR on the operator, a 68-year-old Lynn man, until EMS arrived and took over emergency medical care. The operator was transported to Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.


The passenger, the taxi’s fare, a 24-year-old Cambridge woman, was transported to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The driver had picked up the fare at Logan Airport and was driving her to her residence.


The facts and circumstances of the crash, including what caused the operator to veer off the road, remain under investigation by the State Police-Boston Barracks, State Police Detective Unit for Suffolk County, State Police Troop H Detective Unit, State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, and State Police Crime Scene Services Section. 


The deceased victim’s name is not being released at this time pending notification of next of kin.
