High school student dies in Westborough crash

WESTBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Police say an 18-year-old Westborough man has been killed in a crash on Route 9.

Pablo Salcedo was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash at about 12:30 a.m. Sunday.

School officials say Salcedo was a senior and varsity soccer player at Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School in Marlborough.

Police say the minivan Salcedo was driving west when it struck some sand-filled barrels, a Jersey barrier, and rolled onto its side in the eastbound lane where it hit another vehicle. The driver of that vehicle was not hurt.

The accident remains under investigation.

Superintendent Patrick Collins tells the Telegram & Gazette he had no comment on the death.
