CANTON, MASS. (WHDH) - State police are investigating a violent early morning crash on Route 128 north in Canton that left a driver with life-threatening injuries, officials said.
Troopers responding to a reported crash on the ramp from Route 95 to Route 128 north around 1:25 a.m. found the driver of a 2012 Toyota Camry, a 28-year-old Randolph man whose left arm had been amputated in the crash, according to state police.
The trooper applied a tourniquet to the victim, who was taken to Boston Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.
Emergency crews located the man’s arm and rushed it to Boston Medical Center.
