A serious crash on Route 24 by the Brockton-Avon line has delayed the morning commute.

Around 3 a.m., the Brockton Fire Department tweeted that it was assisting the Avon Fire Department and Boston Medflight for the crash, leaving the highway completely shut down.

At 5:45 a.m., the northbound side of the parkway at Exit 18B stayed shut for the crash examination and cleanup, as indicated by State Police. This left wires on the northbound side of Route 24 that the National Grid worked to stabilize.

One of the victims was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital by a medical helicopter, the fire department said. She is believed to have been a passenger in one of the cars.

One auto went off the highway after an impact with another vehicle and was sheared in half when it struck a utility pole.

The exact cause of the crash remains under investigation by Massachusetts State Police with assistance from the MSP Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section and the MSP Crime Scene Services Section.

The driver of the second auto, a man, was taken by ambulance to an area hospital.

Authorities say you should avoid the area if possible.
