State Police explain why Rte. 1 north was shut in Revere at the start of the evening rush yesterday:
A 17-year-old operator of a 2011 Mercedes-Benz caused a 6 car crash on route 1 northbound in Revere. The crash injured numerous people. The male driver had been issued a citation for speeding just an hour earlier by the Winthrop Police. He told troopers at the scene that he was 'late for work at the Market Basket' which was his reason for speeding in the breakdown when he caused the multi-vehicle crash.
