Two women are dead and one person has serious injuries after a two-car crash on the Jamaicaway early Sunday morning, officials said.
Just before 3 a.m., a 2007 BMW 530XI with three occupants apparently crossed the center lane and collided head-on with a 2002 Toyota Camry with two occupants, State Police said.
Two of the BMW passengers — 44-year-old Maria Y. Hernandez of Everett and 33-year-old Luz A. Puentes-Sheets of Revere — were pronounced dead at the scene. Jennifer Guzman, 26, of Hyde Park, was driving the BMW and suffered non-life-threatening injuries, State Police said.
The driver of the Toyota, Cesar Viasus, 36, of Roslindale sustained non-life-threatening injuries. His passenger, Luis Parra, 43, of Roslindale was in critical condition, according to State Police.
Guzman and both occupants of the Toyota were taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
State Police spokesman Matthew Guarino said the women who were killed were not wearing seat belts, and that was a factor in their deaths.
While public safety responders were on scene, the Jamaicaway remained closed; it reopened at 6:35 a.m.
The cause of the crash was under investigation, officials said.Jennifer Smith can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
