Cabot man killed in Marshfield crash

Staff report
MARSHFIELD – A Cabot man was killed in an early morning accident that closed a section of Route 2 for several hours on Sunday.
According to police, Danville Road resident Nelson Abbott, 63, was ejected from his 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe after it swerved off the road, slammed into a utility pole and overturned. Abbott died from his injuries and the vehicle was destroyed.
Although the accident, which occurred shortly after 3 a.m., is still under investigation, police said they do not believe alcohol was a factor. Abbott, they said, was not wearing his seat belt.
According to police, Abbott was driving west on Route 2 near the intersection of Star Pudding Farm Road when he misjudged a curve in the road. Abbot’s vehicle traveled across the east-bound lane and then off the pavement where it hit a utility pole and rolled.
Police were forced to close Route 2 near Twinfield Union High School so that utility crews could deal with downed power, cable and telephone lines. That section of the state highway was reopened to traffic shortly after 11 a.m. on Sunday.
Police are asking anyone with information about the accident to contact the Middlesex barracks at 229-9191.
