Framingham Car Accidents and Pedestrian Accidents
With 68,000 residents and thousands of college students and workers, car accidents are common in Framingham. Route 9, Route 30 and Route 135 are the major roads through Framingham, which transitioned from a town to a city in 2018. Neighboring communities include Southborough, Marlborough, Sherborn, Ashland, Natick, Wayland and Sudbury. The town has direct access to the Mass Pike and Interstate 495 can be accessed by Route 9 through Southborough.
Car accidents in Framingham are investigated by Framingham Police or Massachusetts State Police, which have barracks at 470 Worcester Road along Route 9, near the headquarters of Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) bunker.
According to the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, Framingham has 7 of the 200 most dangerous intersections in Massachusetts. These include the intersection of Route 30 and Edgell Road, Temple Street and Route 9, Cochituate Road near Whittier Street and Shoppers World Drive.
Another vulnerable area is Framingham State University along Route 9. Students cannot safely cross Route 9 on foot to get to restaurant and shops. In December 2012, a 21-year-old student from Melrose was struck and killed by a car while trying to cross the busy road. As of 2017, the state Department of Transportation was in the early phases of designing a new intersection near Route 9 and Maynard Road to improve safety.

Bicycle Accidents and Safety Outreach
Drivers do not always watch out for cyclists or give them enough room to turn at intersections. In Framingham, the good news is that some cyclists can now get off the street and use the Cochituate Rail Trail, which starts in Saxonville village and when complete, will end in Natick Center.

Framingham Construction Accidents
Framingham has a large number of construction-related companies, including roofing companies, window installation contractors and electricians. Construction accidents can happen when companies fail to follow safety protocols.
- In January 2017, one construction worker was trapped under a backhoe which lost control and slid twice down a snowy hill. The man was extricated and suffered serious injuries to his lower body in the accident.
- Nearby in Marlborough, a 30-year-old fell to his death while working at the New England Sports Center in May 2017. The sports center was in the middle of a 88,830-square-foot expansion project, which will add two ice skating rinks and more parking.
- In August 2017, another worker fell 15-18 feet at Natick-based Mathworks. He fell when a stairway collapsed and suffered arm and head injuries, according to a MetroWest Daily News article.
