One person has died after an early morning, two-car crash in Stoughton, according Stoughton police. 

Around 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 31, a 1994 Honda Accord collided with a 2011 Ford Edge on Route 138 (Washington Street). Christopher Wengler, 32, of North Easton was declared deceased at Good Samaritan Hospital as the result of his injuries, according to police. The second operator sustained minor injuries. 

"The Stoughton Police Detective Unit, in conjunction with the Massachusetts State Police Vehicle Crash Reconstruction team and the Norfolk County District Attorney’s office are currently investigating the circumstances that led to the crash," states the press release on its Facebook page. "It is far too early to speculate on cause as the investigation remains fluid and ongoing."

Which end of wash.did this occur?You could be a little more specific.Both sides of wash are bad,no speed enforcement,it was 15-20yrs ago,I got pulled over for speeding in front of huggard and Ewing and got a warning,That's the worst side I witness Lawlessness quite a bit around there.Following too closely is an issue that is even worse,Police don't do anything to slow down , traffic nowadays.My mother got hit by a unlicensed driver back in 09'and she was ok but she was cited when he was speeding(As Usual) and he went over the double yellow lines while passing a vehicle taking a right on to school.Speeding and traffic enforcement . Is all police should be doing until the next call comes in.It's not even funny how bad things need to change..

Well lori, if you knew how to read I wrote that the most problematic side is the south side, THIS IS not to take away the problem of the north side, The fact this man got killed is the reason why I am commenting, I remember when Traffic Laws were enforced on both sides, AND also all over Stoughton, Here's a little Lesson for you, former chief cachopa was quoted IN 2001 as saying "every one IS on a schedule AND no one is slowing down"Please educate yourself before commenting, THANKYOU

Which crimes would you prefer the police not pursue so they can devote more time to traffic enforcement? Contrary to popular opinion, they aren't all sitting around napping and eating donuts. Take a good look around town...it's not the same place it was 15-20 years ago.
