FRAMINGHAM – A two-vehicle crash at Bethany Road and Winthrop Street this morning, June 29 after 8 a.m. resulted in a truck crashing through a stone wall at St. Tarcisius Cemetery and knocking down a headstone, according to Framingham Police Lt. Patricia Grigas.

The crash is still under investigation and the report was not completed yet, said Lt. Grigas.

The crash involved a Nissan sedan and a Mitsubishi truck, said Lt. Grigas.

A street sign was knocked down, a vehicle went through a stone wall, and a headstone was damaged, she said.

There were “significant injuries,” with that crash, said Framingham Fire Chief Mike Dutcher.

The female in the sedan was transported to Framingham Union Hospital, said the chief.

Rescue 1 and ladder 3 were needed to extricate one of the two men in the truck, said Chief Dutcher.

One man was transported to a Boston Hospital. The man extricated was taken to UMass Memorial Hospital in Worcester, said Chief Dutcher.

The MWRTA was diverting its buses around the intersection this morning.

The intersection was recently approved for a 4-way stop sign and other improvements as it is one of the top 10 crash areas in the City. Work is not scheduled for the improvements until later.
