State Police Investigate Fatal Crashes In Quincy, Saugus

State police are investigating the deaths of three people in two unrelated early morning car crashes in Quincy and Saugus.

Troopers responding to the Quincy crash Wednesday on Route 28 found the car flipped over and engulfed in flames. The 30-year-old male driver and the 29-year-old front-seat passenger were pronounced dead at the scene. The rear-seat passenger, a 30-year-old Methuen man, was taken to a Boston hospital.

Police say it appears the car failed to negotiate a curve, went off the road and struck a tree.

In Saugus, a 39-year-old woman was killed in a single-car rollover on U.S. Route 1 north at about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday. The victim was ejected from her vehicle.

The cause of both crashes remains under investigation.

No names were released.
