Relatives of mattress crash victim speak out

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (WHDH) -

Relatives of a woman who was killed in a car accident near the Lexington-Burlington line hope the driver who caused the crash will come forward.

A truck lost a mattress in the middle of the 95-south Tuesday. A woman driving behind the truck stopped to avoid the mattress. Another car then collided with her car.

She was taken to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The woman was identified as 56-year-old Frida Litvak. Her sister, Galina Litvak, said the family is stunned by the tragic accident.

“I can't believe that it happened still. I'm just waiting for the door to open and she will come. Hopefully this person is going to be caught because I don't want it to happen to other people so other people won't have to go through what we're going through now," said Galina.

Relatives said Frida was driving home Tuesday to help take her blind father to a doctor's appointment.

“She was very close with my father. My father is blind. She was his eyes and his ears,” said Galina.

Litvak moved to the U.S. 14 years ago, and lived with her parents in Framingham.

Investigators said the vehicle that lost the mattress has a white cab and a dark truck bed, with netting along the side.
