An elderly Tewksbury man has died as a result of injuries sustained  Monday, July 27, in a three-car accident on Route 38, near Mahoney's Garden Center.
Forest Winslow, 80, passed away Saturday, surrounded by family, at Brigham and Women's Hospital.
Winslow sustained a fractured neck, a severe gash on his head and bleeding on the brain as a result of the accident. He was med-flighted to Brigham and Women's immediate after the crash.
The accident took place around 10:45 a.m. as Winslow, driving a Lincoln Town Car, travelled south on Route 38. An SUV, carrying a woman and three children, was stopped to make a left turn into Splash Car Wash. According to a witness, Winslow's Lincoln struck the SUV from behind at full speed, making no effort to brake.
The SUV was pushed into the northbound lane, where it struck a third vehicle, a pickup track along the driver's side door.
Despite an earlier report, the airbags of the SUV did not deploy. The woman and her children sustained minor injuries and were checked out at the emergency room but did not require hospitalization.
The driver of the pickup truck was not injured.
After the crash, the driver of the SUV left her vehicle to tend to Winslow. She and a witness to the crash stayed with him until paramedics arrived.
The State Police Accident Reconstruction team is investigating the cause of the crash.
