The search is ongoing for the driver of an SUV that caused a three-vehicle crash resulting in the death of a man from Cape Cod and injuries to three others. According to Massachusetts State Police, the incident occurred on Friday afternoon on Interstate 95 in Topsfield.

The driver of the 2008 GMC Acadia SUV and his passenger fled the scene of the crash into nearby woods. The passenger, identified as David Guzman, 30, of Lynn, was later apprehended by State Troopers and charged with interfering with a police officer. Guzman posted bail and is awaiting his court appearance.

Authorities dispatched K9 teams and the Air Wing to locate the driver, who is also from Lynn. Witnesses reported seeing the man running across the golf course of Ferncroft Country Club towards the parking lot.

The man killed in the crash has been identified as Valkisergio Costa Silva, 44, of Centerville. Silva was a passenger in a 2006 Chevrolet Express Van that was struck by a Chevy Impala attempting to avoid the stopped SUV. Silva and another passenger were ejected from the van, and Silva was pronounced dead at the scene. The other passenger, a 30-year-old man, was airlifted to a Boston hospital with life-threatening injuries.


The driver of the van and a third passenger were taken to a local hospital for treatment, while the driver of the Impala escaped unharmed. The investigation into the crash is ongoing..
