STURBRIDGE, Mass., May 9 (UPI) -- Fenway Park public address announcer Carl Beane died in a single-car accident Wednesday about 60 miles west of Boston, authorities said.

Worcester, Mass., District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. said Beane, 59, died at a Southbridge, Mass., hospital following an accident in Sturbridge, Mass., The Boston Globe reported.

Early said a preliminary investigation indicated Beane was driving a sport utility vehicle that crashed shortly after noon. The vehicle appeared to have crossed the center line, left the road, then hit a tree and a wall.

Golfers playing at a nearby course called police to the scene.

Police said Beane was alone in his vehicle and no other vehicles were involved.

Beane was hired to announce at Fenway -- home of the Boston Red Sox -- in 2003 after a career as a Boston radio announcer, including a stint at WBZ-AM, the Globe reported.
