Pablo Salcedo killed Jan. 5 in Route 9 crash
WESTBOROUGH, Mass. — Police say a high school senior who died in a car crash in Westborough this month was texting at the time.
Eighteen-year-old Pablo Salcedo, a varsity soccer player at Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School in Marlborough, was killed Jan. 5 when the minivan he was driving crashed on Route 9.
Police say Salcedo was driving west when he struck some sand-filled barrels, a barrier, and rolled onto its side in the eastbound lane where it hit another vehicle.
That driver was not hurt.
Police tell The Telegram & Gazette the investigation found that Salcedo “was distracted through the use of his cellphone to read and text messages.”
