Sumner Tunnel crash kills one, injures three

The driver of a car that hit barriers and the tunnel wall at the Government Center onramp died in the 3:30 a.m. crash, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports. She was 33 and a Dorchester resident.

Preliminary evidence suggests the vehicle struck a concrete attenuator that splits the lane, then collided with the tunnel wall. Multiple civilian motorists stopped at the scene in an attempt to render assistance. The operator, however, was killed in the crash. Her passengers, all adults from Boston, were transported to area hospitals with injuries seemed not life-threatening.
