Five people, including three teenagers, were killed when a driver drove the wrong way on a Massachusetts Interstate. The victims have been named by the Massachusetts State Police as Valantein Burson, 31, Kraig Diggs, 20, Jordan Galvin, 19, Jordan Fisher, 19, and Cory Licata, 18.
The state police said that it was Burson who drove her 2011 Infiniti G37 south on the northbound side of Interstate 495. The crash happened on October 24. Diggs was driving his 2003 Mercury Sable on the correct side of the road when he was hit. The other victims were his passengers. The crash is being investigated by Troop D of the Massachusetts State Police.
The Boston Globe reports that Galvin and Diggs were both students at Anna Maria College in Paxton, Massachusetts. While Fisher and Licata were both studying at Becker College. Four of the victims were from Massachusetts, only Licata was from out of state, hailing from West Babylon, New York.
