    Police seek help in Route 24 fatal crash

    A 3-year-old girl has died from injuries suffered during a two-car crash on Route 24 in Randolph Wednesday night, State Police said.

    The girl, whose name was not released by State Police because she is a juvenile, was rushed to Boston Medical Center in Boston after the crash, but later died from her injuries, officials said.

    The woman driving the 2000 Toyota Corolla the girl was riding in and a male passenger were not injured. The driver of the second vehicle involved in the crash was taken to the hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.


    State Police responded to reports of the crash in northbound traffic at 5:54 p.m., a short distance south of the highway’s intersection with Interstate 93. Troopers found the girl and immediately rushed her to the hospital.
