Man killed in Holyoke crash identified

Posted: Updated:

State police have identified the man killed in a two-car crash in Holyoke Tuesday night. 

Police tell CBS 3 Danny Lugo, 25, of Springfield, was driving a black Honda on Interstate 391 when he refused to stop for state troopers for motor vehicle violations. 

Lugo exited 391 and was traveling down Main Street in Holyoke at a high rate of speed when he smashed into an SUV as it pulled out from Berkshire Street. 

That SUV was being driven by a 61-year-old Holyoke man who police say is in intensive care at Baystate Medical Center. 

After the crash, state police say they found 45 clear glassine baggies containing a substance believed to be heroin and one plastic baggie containing a substance believed to be cocaine in Lugo's car. Also located in the vehicle was more than $700 cash.

Those items have been taken as evidence. 

The investigation into the crash is ongoing and is being led by the Hampden County State Police Detective Unit, with the assistance of the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit, the State Police Crime Scene Services Unit, and Holyoke police. 

Troopers are also interviewing witnesses.
