According to Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early Jr., Beane was the driver of a 2004 Suzuki heading north on Holland Road in Sturbridge. A preliminary investigation revealed the car crossed double-solid lines, left the road and struck a tree and wall at 233 Holland Road around 12:30 p.m., according to the district attorney.
The 59-year-old Beane, who resides in Holland, was pronounced dead at Harrington Hospital in Southbridge.
A cause was not immediately determined.
Beane was the only person in the car and no other vehicles were involved. The accident took place near Hemlock Ridge Golf Course. According to Early, golfers at Hemlock called police at 12:39 p.m. to notify them of the crash.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has accepted the case. The crash remains under investigation by the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office, The Central Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council and Sturbridge Police.
A spokesperson for the Boston Red Sox said the organization was aware of the incident, but said the team had no immediate statement.
