The Belchertown community was struck by a heart-wrenching tragedy as Miles Murray, a young resident of Henniker, New Hampshire, met with a fatal accident. The Miles Murray Car Accident unfolded on a somber Sunday, leaving a profound sense of loss in its wake.
At approximately 8:45 on that fateful Sunday night, a state trooper initiated an attempt to pull over a 2011 Nissan Altima.

Remembering Miles Murray
Miles Murray, a teenager from Henniker, New Hampshire, now forever etched into the community’s memory, was identified as the unfortunate victim of this Sunday night car crash. The incident left a North Main Street residence significantly damaged, a somber reminder of the chain of events that unfolded.
Miles was driving a 2011 Nissan Altima south on Route 202, pursued by State Police, when tragedy struck. The car careened out of control on a left-hand curve, propelling over a mulch bed before colliding with a rock wall, a towering tree, and two light posts. The final moments of the crash saw the Altima crash into a Jeep parked in a driveway and into the 73 North Main Street home.
The impact was jarring for the homeowners, Trevor and Donna Sims, who purchased the 1832 brick Colonial dwelling 2½ years prior. The force of the collision was so great that the Altima’s engine block became dislodged, tearing through the home’s brick wall and creating chaos within. Donna Sims, a nursing assistant, was at work during the incident, and the news of the crash left her in a state of shock and horror.

Efforts to support the Sims family have gained momentum, including monetary contributions through a GoFundMe page, as well as donations of food and assistance from various individuals, including Paul Adzima, the building inspector.

As the investigation into the crash continues under the watchful eyes of Massachusetts State Police and Belchertown Police, the community rallies together to rebuild not only structures but also lives.
