    Shortly after, the trooper came across the crash on Quincy Shore Drive in the area of Caddy Memorial Park.

    A preliminary investigation reveals that the speeding suspect sideswiped one car and then crashed into another before impacting and rolling over the sea wall.

    The suspect's vehicle is on the beach and will be removed by a rotator wrecker.

    The suspect, identified Tuesday morning as 50-year-old Quincy resident Peter J. Boylan who fled the motor vehicle stop, was pronounced dead on scene.

    A 27-year-old woman who was a passenger in Boylan's car was ejected from the car and was transported to Boston Medical Center.

    A 36-yea-old man driving of one of the cars struck by the suspect was also taken to Boston Medical Center.
