Debris strikes car; one dead
By John R. Ellement, Globe Staff | July 11, 2006
A portion of the ceiling in the tunnel connecting Interstate 93 north to the Ted Williams Tunnel collapsed last night, cascading debris onto a passing car and killing a female passenger, authorities said this morning.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene but her husband managed to crawl out of the crumpled car, said state officials, who would not release their names. The man was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital.
