Two former Quinnipiac students die after crash in Boston

BOSTON, MASS. (WFSB) – Massachusetts State Police are investigating a crash involving a tow truck and an SUV on Interstate 93 last night that resulted in the deaths of two former Quinnipiac students.

An investigation by troopers indicated that at about 10:00 pm Saturday, a Kenworth tractor-trailer was heading north on I-93 in Boston.

At the same time, a Lexus SUV drove in front of the truck.

South of Exit 20, the Lexus braked for unknown reasons and was rear-ended by the tow truck, according to Massachusetts State Police.

A third vehicle, a 2012 Honda Civic sedan, drove behind the truck and struck the truck at an angle.

The two backseat passengers in the Lexus, both former Quinnipiac students, were trapped inside the vehicle and were pronounced dead at the scene.

They have been identified as Delanie Fekert, 25, of Floral Park, NY, and Urushi Madani, 25, of North Andover.

The operator of the Lexus, a 53-year-old Revere man, was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital with serious injuries.

Police say the driver of the tow truck, a Salem man, suffered no apparent injuries and remained at the scene for the investigation.

The operator of the Honda, a woman from Manchester New Hampshire, also suffered no visible injuries and remained on the scene for the investigation.

Quinnipiac University said:

“Delanie Fekert and Urushi Madani graduated from Quinnipiac University in 2021 after completing their doctorates in physical therapy.

This is a terrible loss for Delanie and Urushi’s families and friends. We send our deepest condolences to their families, friends and those in our community who knew them.”
