BRAINTREE, MASS. (WHDH) — The friends of a man killed in an accident on I-93 in Braintree over the weekend are mourning the loss while urging those potentially responsible to come forward while state police investigators search for two other cars search that may be connected to the accident.
State police announced earlier this week that they believe the other two cars were traveling at high speeds and may have collided with each other.
Michael Wojdag, 46, of Hanson, was killed in the crash Sunday night while returning to their home with his wife and son after a ski trip on Wachusett Mountain.
Speaking to 7NEWS, one of Wojdag’s friends, Mike Berian, recalled Wojdag as “a real, down to earth, good man.”
Berian said Wojdag was “everybody’s friend”.
“So, a lot of heartbreaks and everyone’s just trying to cope with losing him,” he continued.
Wojdag and his family were about 9 p.m. near exit 6 of I-93 North when their Chevy Tahoe was hit by a Honda Civic.
The crash killed Wojdag and sent his wife and son to the hospital with minor injuries.
Police said the five occupants of the Civic, who were not injured, remained at the scene and were cooperating with the investigation.
Officials said one of the two other vehicles currently wanted may have struck the Civic, forcing it into the Tahoe.
In the past few days, Wojdag’s family and friends have been trying to come to terms with the loss.
Berian, who has known the family for years, said he had a message for the drivers, who are now being observed by state police in the incident.
“Take responsibility,” he said. “Be responsible.”
Berian will meet with Wojdag’s family and friends this weekend for a final goodbye as Wojdag leaves behind his wife, 17-year-old daughter and 14-year-old son.
Described as a man everyone can always count on, Berian said he hopes those closest to Wojdag will continue to cherish his memory.
“He really really cared about everyone he came in contact with and showed up all the time,” Berian said. “And that’s really what we should all do, which is show up for each other.”
Berian set one up GoFundMe for Wojdag’s family.
