*04/23/12* Groton police released the names of the drivers of the vehicles late Monday afternoon: Kimberly Yapp, 37, of Littleton, MA and Elisabeth McKenna, 25, of Boxborough, MA. McKenna was still at MGH, listed in "good"condition.


A two-car, head-on Route 119 (Boston Road) near Shelters Road (near Four Corners) at about 10:20 p.m. Friday sent at least two people to Massachusetts General Hospital via helicopter.

A press release issued by the Groton Police Department revealed that the crash involved two vehicles, a 2008 Toyota Yaris traveling eastbound on Boston Rd/Rt 119 and a
2005 Volvo XC9 which had been traveling westbound. Both vehicles sustained major damage. Police did not release the names of the drivers or occupants of either vehicle.

Bryant Obando was driving up 119 just after the accident. He reported: “Came upon the scene of a really bad car accident on Route 119 in Groton, Massachusetts. The road was closed and cars were not able to move. I got out of the car to see what was going on and had my camera with me. There were two cars involved in a head-on collision. The emergency personnel had to use the Jaws Of Life to free people from one vehicle. A child in a car seat was removed from one of the cars. The lady in the Volvo was examined and able to walk to the waiting ambulance under her own power. The seriously injured were taken to the park off Stonebridge Way and Med Flighted to MGH.”

Two passengers in the Toyota, reported to be children, were transported to MGH; police reported them to be listed in “stable” condition on Saturcay.
