Here's what South Boston Online knows:
An out-of-control car with three occupants careened into a lamp pole. Ambulances arrived at the scene and began administering medical aid to the three occupants. Traffic at and around the scene of the accident came to a stand still; a large crowd gathered.
Here's what we have heard, but have not been able to confirm:
All three occupants of the car were supposedly high on some form of illegal substance. The ambulances had to resuscitate or revive at least one of the three occupants of the car that hit the pole. South Boston Online will be working to confirm this chain of events.
Oh, yes. This incident occurred in broad daylight at 10 a.m. last Monday morning, August 7. Whatever the cause, it happened in South Boston's single busiest intersection - where Dorchester Street and Broadway meet to form Perkins Square. It's a miracle that no one else was injured or killed.
