Shortly before 3:30 a.m. on a Sunday, Mass State Police responded to a vehicle with front end damage abandoned in the median strip on 495. The abandoned car was a 2011 Mercedes Maybach registered to New England Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes. OnStar on-board navigation system said that the operator of the vehicle reported hitting a deer. But police said there was no deer located at the scene. A short time later troopers responded to a report of a Nissan Murano with rear end damage on 495 northbound, the same area as the abandoned Mercedes. There were three occupants in the Murano and all were to an area hospital with minor injuries. Police identified the three people as a 52-year old man, 32-year old woman and a 12-year old boy. No charges have been filed and there is an ongoing investigation into both incidents.
