Anthony Nwabude,26, of Quincy has died from injuries he suffered in a head-on crash in Quincy yesterday. Nwabude’s vehicle veered across the center line on Wampatuck Road and hit a Jeep that was being driven by Yvonne Fairgrieve, 34, also of Quincy.
Police reported that Nwabude was not wearing his seatbelt when the accident occurred and he was taken to a local hospital. Nwabude was pronounced dead a short time later at the hospital. Fairgrieve was reportedly wearing her seatbelt and was taken to a Boston hospital for treatment of minor injuries he sustained in the deadly crash.
Wampatuck Road was shut down for approximately 2 ½ hours due to emergency responders on the scene and reconstruction efforts to determine the cause of the accident.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), wearing a seatbelt can greatly reduce your risk of severe injury or death in the event of a crash. Roughly 30% of drivers involved in fatal car accidents across the country in 2009 were not wearing seatbelts. About 50% of occupants in car crashes who were killed nationwide were not wearing their seatbelts that same year.
