Police Identify Man Killed in Rollover Crash in Springfield


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Police have identified the man killed on a crash overnight in Springfield.

Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney says that around midnight Wednesday, police responded to a report of a one car accident near the corner of Page Boulevard and St. James Avenue.

When officers arrived, they found a green Volvo SUV flipped on it’s roof, but it was unoccupied.

About ten minutes later, Delaney explains that police got another call saying there was a disturbance at the Baystate Medical Center emergency department.

“When officers arrived they were greeted by several subjects, one who admitted to bringing his friend to the emergency room that was just involved in an accident at St. James Avenue and Page Blvd.,” Delaney says.

That person, 21-year-old Dwayne Borbua of Springfield, was pronounced dead a short time later.

“The friend that brought Borbua to the hospital stated that he was following his friend to a location, did not see the accident but came across his friends car that was flipped over and put his in his car and drove him to the hospital,” Delaney explains.

Investigators also reportedly found illegal narcotics in the car and at the scene of the crash. It’s not yet known if Borbua was alone in the car.

The crash remains under investigation.
