QUINCY (WBZ) ― Two people were killed in a car crash in Quincy early Tuesday morning.

State police say a Lincoln LS went off Rt. 28 northbound, rolled over and struck a tree at about 2:40 a.m.

The impact split the car in half. Some parts were found 100 feet away.

The driver, a 26-year-old man from Hyde Park, and the passenger, a 25-year-old man from Canton, were both pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said both men were wearing seat belts.

Authorities did not immediately release the names of the men and said the accident remained under investigation.

Yup, and I'll also venture a guess that a seatbelt wouldn't have helped when you when your car fragments either.

It's too bad that the message that's been pounded into kids heads for years hasn't been adhered to. I feel sorry for those they left behind.

This should be a poster and hung in every high school in America.

Boston firefighter, friend die in crash south of Boston

QUINCY, Mass. -- Officials say an off-duty Boston firefighter and his friend were killed in a car crash while driving home from a New England Patriots game.
State police said the men were in a Lincoln LS that swerved off Route 28 northbound in Quincy, rolled and struck a tree about 2:40 a.m. Tuesday.
The driver of the car was identified as 26-year-old Boston firefighter Paul Loring, of the city's Hyde Park neighborhood. The fire department said Loring was an Army veteran who served in Iraq and joined the department in August 2006.
The name of the passenger, a 25-year-old Canton man, has not been released.
Fire department spokesman Steve MacDonald said the men were lifelong friends and were returning from the Patriots game Monday night in Foxborough.
Police said both men were wearing seat belts.

The crash remains under investigation.

Re: 2 Killed In Route 28 Crash/Iraq vet, best pal killed in Quincy crash

Iraq vet, best pal killed in Quincy crash

'He Had Everything Going For Him'

By Jessica Fargen
Wednesday, October 22, 2008 -

The 26-year-old Iraq war veteran who died in a car crash yesterday was planning a wedding, buying a home and living his dream as a Boston firefighter when his life was cut short in a Quincy car crash, his mother said.
"He had everything going for him. He was so happy," said Dottie Loring of Hyde Park, whose only child, Paul P. Loring, died yesterday. "He never gave us... (any) trouble."
Loring and his fiancee had just set the date for their July 3, 2009, wedding. An offer the couple made on a home in West Roxbury was just accepted, she said.

Loring was driving his lifelong friend, Patrick J. Forde, 25, of Canton, home from the Patriots [team stats]-Denver Broncos game at about 2:40 a.m. on Route 28 in Quincy when the car veered off the road and rolled into a tree, state police said. Yesterday, skidmarks indicated the car crossed the center line and slid for 25 yards.
Loring and Forde, who were wearing seatbelts, were pronounced dead at the scene. State police are investigating.
The family is still trying to make sense of it all, said Loring's dad, Paul E. Loring, as he stood on his front lawn, surrounded by family and joined by Ed Kelly, the firefighter union president.
"He was the greatest kid in the world," Loring said. "He was one of my best friends."
The younger Loring enlisted in the National Guard when he was a senior at Boston College High School. His bereft father held back tears as he recalled his son's 21st birthday party at the family's Turtle Pond Parkway home when Loring got the call that he was going to Iraq with his unit, the 1058th Transportation Co.. He served for a year.
He joined the Boston Fire Department in August 2006, following in the steps of his paternal grandfather. He was assigned to Tower Ladder 17 in the Back Bay. Loring knew even as a high school sophomore what he wanted to do with his life.
" 'My dream job is to be a Boston firefighter,' " Paul E. Loring recalled his son saying.
Forde and Loring grew up together in Hyde Park, playing youth sports and were both avid Patriots fans, said Forde's brother, Brian. Forde was branch manager at the TD BankNorth in Walpole, and he just bought a house with his girlfriend two months ago.
"He is one of the most outgoing and friendly people you'd meet," he said.
