PC parts repaired in crash that killed 1
PC parts that were repaired in a crash that claimed the life of a Boston woman and severely injured another person were among the computers repaired in the crash, according to an official with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The agency’s National Computer Incident Response Team has been assisting the state’s investigation.
Investigators have recovered some of the computers and have started reviewing the computer equipment, said James Schramm, director of the National Computer Investigation Team.
The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, which oversees the investigation, said Monday that the agency was working with Boston’s accident investigation team to determine what led up to the crash.
The crash, which happened Monday afternoon, occurred about 7:15 p.m. on Interstate 93 between the Massachusetts Turnpike and the Boston Municipal Airport.
The accident closed Interstate 93 for nearly two hours while the crash investigation team investigated.
The investigation into the crash will likely continue, the NHTSA said.
Investigators believe the woman, who was traveling in the left front passenger seat, was driving westbound on the Interstate when the car in front of her veered into a guardrail, then into the guardrail again.
The driver was not injured.
A passenger in the right front passenger side of the car was not seriously injured.
The woman was identified as Jessica Reardon of New Bedford, Massachusetts.
She was 31.
A preliminary investigation determined that the woman was driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.14 percent or more, the National Transportation Safety Board said.
A NHTS spokeswoman said the agency has no additional information.
