Brian Tangney Jr., killed in Worcester motorcycle crash, was set to graduate from Quinsigamond Community College Thursday

Filed under: Personal injury — Local News @ 8:26 pm

WORCESTER — The young man who died Wednesday morning in a fatal motorcycle accident on Salisbury Street was set to graduate from Quinsigamond Community College just a day after his death.

While police have not officially released the name of the 25-year-old Holden man who died from injuries sustained in the accident, his mother, Anne Tangney said her son Brian Tangney Jr. lost his life in the crash.

The accident occurred sometime around 2:30 a.m. not far from where Salisbury and Forest streets intersect.

“He was a really, really good kid,” Anne Tangney, fighting back tears in a brief telephone interview. “He was going to graduate from Quinsigamond tomorrow.”

Tangney put himself through college working as a motorcycle driving instructor for the Central Mass. Safety Council Inc. in West Boylston, his mother said.

Anne Tangney said her son also spent time in Haiti with a group that did relief work. He went there to give medical aid for people in that country. The young man was about to receive his degree in respiratory care, she said.

Tangney graduated from Doherty Memorial High School in 2008.

In a statement, Quinsigamond Community College said Tangney was scheduled to receive his associate degree in respiratory care Thursday.

The college’s dean of students, Liz Woods, issued a statement about Tangney.

“Brian Tangney and I had the opportunity to travel to Haiti with other members of his Respiratory Care class in January,” she said. “Throughout that trip Brian was professional, warm and loving, attending to the needs of the people of Haiti and doing whatever needed to be done to help the group function well. It was my joy to travel with and get to know Brian throughout those long hot days. His loss is particularly difficult in this commencement week.”

One of Tangney’s friends, Jamie Goodman, posted a couple messages on her Facebook page about his death. The dispatcher at the Oxford Police Department said he was too young to die.

“Wish this wasn’t real. My heart goes out to your family, Brian Tangney,” she wrote. “Your humor, laugh, and smile will certainly be missed by all!”

An off-duty Worcester police officer came upon the accident scene and called dispatchers, Worcester police said in a news release. The officer asked for an ambulance and other emergency responders to head to the area.

“Arriving officers along with the off-duty officer performed emergency medical treatment to the 25-year-old male victim prior to the arrival of Worcester EMS and members of the Worcester Fire Department,” police said.

Police said the victim died in the emergency room just before 3:10 a.m.

A preliminary investigation by the Worcester Police Crash Reconstruction Unit indicates the motorcycle hit a granite curbing about 170 feet before Forest Street.

“The motorcycle traveled a short distance before striking a sign post,” police said. “After striking the sign post the motorcycle hit an aluminum light pole.”

Wheelbarrow in road led to fatal car crash

Filed under: Personal injury — Local News @ 9:19 pm

The family of a man killed when his car crashed into a wheelbarrow left on a highway  is pleading for the person responsible to come forward.

Watch report

Police say a Webster man was traveling on Interstate 395 southbound in Oxford  around 1 p.m. Saturday when he came across the wheelbarrow and lost control trying to avoid it.

The car overturned and Steven Richards, 32, was fatally injured when he was thrown from the vehicle.  Richards left a wife and two children.

“He was such a loving caring man. He would do anything for me.  He treated me like his queen.  He would do anything for his babies,” said Jessica Richards, his wife.

Police are investigating how the wheelbarrow came to be in the road, near Exit 5 at Oxford.

Investigators had been seeking two individuals believed to have been at the scene of the crash, but Monday morning said they had found one of the vehicles they were looking for.

“Please just help my family bring peace.  We need to know who did this.  I just want peace,” said Richards.

The first person was driving a red pickup truck with red wooden sides. Witnesses told police this truck was filled with mulch and had a wheelbarrow on top that fell off the truck and into the road.

“I think he’s a coward I think he should show his face,” said Richards.

The second individual is described by police as a thin, black male who stopped and had conversation with other witnesses at the initial scene on Route 395 southbound in the moments prior to the fatal crash.
