The voice of Fenway Park is gone. Fifty-nine-year-old Carl Beane, the public address announcer for the Red Sox, died Wednesday in a single car crash in Sturbridge.

Authorities say his car crossed double lines, left the road, and hit a tree on Holland Road. The accident remains under investigation.

Beane's was the voice that made Sox fans feel at home for almost a decade. He was at the mic at Fenway since 2003, including for two World Series.

Beane was born and raised in Agawam and got his broadcasting start at a small station in Ware, a station where he was still doing fill-in work this week.

This program aired on May 9, 2012. The audio for this program is not available.
