Kevin Vulter’s Jeep swerved across lanes, hit a fence and and a tree, crossed lanes again and hit a stone wall. Vulter was extracted alive from the vehicle by police, but he died a short time later at UMass Memorial Medical Center.
Vulter graduated from Grafton high school in 2006 where he played football. He still has siblings who attend Grafton High. The close-knit Grafton community is shaken by the accident and has postponed all weekend events, including the football game.
Police are not sure what caused the accident. Speed might have been a factor but police have not said if alcohol or not wearing a seatbelt are factors in the tragic outcome of the accident.
