Officers from the Milton Police Department responded to the vicinity of Blue Hill Avenue (Route 138) and Canton Avenue at 3:28 a.m. Wednesday, April 7 on a report of a motor vehicle crash. Upon arrival, officers discovered an Infiniti that had been travelling southbound on Blue Hill Avenue had run off the roadway and struck two utility poles. These utility poles were snapped in half and some power lines were down. The driver, a 39-year-old male and alone in the car, was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced deceased at the scene. Identification is being withheld pending notification of the next-of-kin. Route 138 southbound was reopened to traffic in the afternoon at approximately 2 p.m. Route 138 northbound remains closed at this time between Canton Avenue and Brush Hill Road. Verizon and Eversource are working to repair their infrastructure. Only a coordinated localized power outage to the area took place to protect first responders working the scene from the downed power lines. The Milton Police are being assisted by the Massachusetts State Police Accident Reconstruction unit. Speed is believed to have been a factor in this crash.
