Norfolk DA Morrissey hospitalized after car accident

Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey was being treated at a hospital early Wednesday morning after being injured in a multi-vehicle accident Tuesday evening in Milton, his spokesman said.

Spokesman David Traub said in a statement that the accident occurred on Centre Street shortly before 6 p.m., and that Morrissey was “transported by ambulance to a local hospital.”

Traub did not provide details of Morrissey’s injuries or say whether he was driving at the time of the accident. He also did not say if there was any word on what caused the accident, but added that three other people were treated at area hospitals and released.

Traub also did not identify the hospital where the district attorney was being treated, and he said he had no information on his condition late Tuesday.

Officials at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton and several major Boston hospitals said that Morrissey was not being treated at their facilities.

Morrissey, 58, said in the statement that he was “very concerned about the well-being of the other parties injured in this accident.” The statement did not provide any information about the other victims.

Morrissey’s family could not be reached, and a Milton police spokesman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Morrissey, of Quincy, was elected as the county’s top prosecutor three years ago and previously served as a state representative from 1977 to 1992 and as a state senator from 1992 to 2010, according to his office’s website.
