Randolph man is killed on I-495

A 39-year-old Randolph man was killed Sunday night in a multiple-vehicle crash on Interstate 495 in Plainville that apparently was caused by a wrong-way driver, State Police said.

The fatally injured man was identified Monday as Tony Q. Dang. State Police said he was driving a 2006 Honda Accord at the time of the 9:17 p.m. crash in the southbound lanes of I-495 between exits 13 and 14.


State troopers were investigating reports that a driver was going the wrong way on the interstate when the multiple-vehicle crash took place. State Police said Monday that the investigation is ongoing, and they cannot say whether Dang was the wrong-way driver.

State Police identified the other drivers and the six other vehicles involved in the seven-vehicle crash this morning.
