DORCHESTER, MASS. (WHDH) - A driver was taken into custody after a crash that killed one and seriously injured two others on I-93 South in Dorchester.

According to Massachusetts State Police, a man hit a guardrail while driving on I-93 South around 2:30 a.m. Because he couldn’t use his car, he began walking on 93 South between exits 13 and 12.

The man, 34-year-old Christian Yemga of Quincy, was hit by a car driven by a 35-year-old man, who stopped and remained on the scene. This impact killed Yemga. While the 35-year-old’s car was stopped, it was hit by another car. That driver, 33-year-old Nikita Wilkins, was under the influence of alcohol, according to police.

Massachusetts State Police said the man who was hit was determined to be dead on scene.

The two people in the car that hit Yemga were taken to a local hospital with serious injuries and the driver of the third vehicle was taken into custody after being determined to be operating under the influence.

All lanes on 93 south were closed for a portion of Saturday morning but have since reopened as State Police continue to investigate the crash.
