Victim identified in fatal I-495 crash”

A tow-truck driver coming to the aid of a stranded motorist was struck and killed in a multi-vehicle pileup late last night on Route 495 in Andover, state police said.

Another tow truck operator, a 44-year-old man from Lawrence, was on top of the flatbed at the time of crash.

Daniel Coady, 41, of North Andover was struck while responding to a crash on I-495 southbound in Andover Wednesday night.

That's when police say a Pontiac G6 hit a BMW that was parked in the breakdown lane. A second tow truck driver assisting his colleague on the flatbed was also injured and taken to Lowell General. The Pontiac came to a stop disabled in the right lane of travel, and then it was struck by a 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe that had been driving in that lane past the initial crash scene.

At around 11 p.m. Coady was taken to Saint's Memorial Hospital in Lowell and pronounced dead. The driver of the Pontiac auto, a 28-year-old woman from Lawrence, was transported with serious injuries. The 26-year-old woman who had been driving the Hyundai did not sustain any injuries in the crash.

An employee of Coady's Towing declined to comment on the crash Thursday afternoon.

At least five vehicles were involved in the crash, said State Police spokesman Dave Procopio, which left multiple people injured and one "probable fatality".

No names have been released and no charges have been filed at this point in the investigation.
