BROCKTON, MASS. (WHDH) - Police are investigating a multi-car crash in Brockton that killed one person and seriously injured several others.

Officials said the crash involved pedestrians, cars and motorcycles. Brockton Police told 7NEWS at least five people were taken to nearby hospitals after the crash, which was reported just before 8:30 p.m. at Pleasant Street and Nye Avenue.

“I heard everything,” said Edmar Goncalves, who lives nearby and heard the accident Wednesday night. “I went outside and what I found was a dead person right in front of my house.”

Goncalves said he and a few others immediately called 911. Police quickly swarmed the area and blocked off the street.

Brockton’s fire department was also called in, with crews treating victims before they were transported by ambulance. Pleasant Street remained blocked off to traffic late into the evening as officials continued to collect evidence.

Goncalves said this is the third bad crash he’s seen since he began living on Pleasant Street in February and is concerned about his family walking around the neighborhood.

“I feel like at night it’s kind of dark over there … there should be more lighting,” said Goncalves. “I can’t even trust the road. I can’t even trust my neighborhood.”

The crash remains under investigation by State and local police.
