Procopio said three vehicles were involved: a 2011 BMW sedan operated by Fernandes, a 2018 Acura sedan operated by a 27-year-old man from Brockton, and a 2021 Ford Explorer owned by the Hampden County Sheriff‘s Department.
A preliminary investigation found the BMW “failed to stop at a red light and rammed the Ford before hitting the Acura,” according to state police.
