Police: Street Racing May Have Caused Route 16 Wreck

Three people involved in an accident early Wednesday morning are in serious condition.

An accident early Wednesday morning on Route 16 may have been caused by street racing, State Police said.

Shortly after midnight Wednesday, a 2004 Honda Accord driven by an unidentified 30-year-old Somerville man was travelling west in the eastbound lane near Wellington Station when it collided head-on with a Honda Civic driven by a 23-year-old Cambridge man with a 25-year-old passenger, police said in a press release.

After speaking with witnesses, State Police are investigating whether the Civic was involved in a race and the second vehicle in the race fled after the accident, and why the Accord was in the wrong lane, the release said.

All three were transported to Massachusetts General Hospital where they remained with serious injuries later Wednesday morning, police said.

The accident remained under investigation later Wednesday morning.
