Massachusetts State Police say Randall Barbosa, 25, of Weymouth was merging onto I-93 from Route 3 North at a high rate of speed in a 2008 BMW when he rear-ended a 1997 Lexus.

After the crash, Barbosa continued southbound and hit a 2007 Toyota Sequoia, which led to another crash.

The passenger in Barbosa's car was taken to Boston Medical Center with serious injuries.

A 20-year-old Lynn man who was a passenger in the Lexus was taken to South Shore Hospital with minor injuries.
