Police say the investigation shows that 84-year-old Clarence Lux of New Britain, Conn., made a U-turn minutes before the crashing into a car driven by 28-year-old Robert Magee of West Bridgewater on Friday night in Ludlow.
Lux and Magee died.

Police say Lux had a medical condition that might have been a contributing factor. State police would not disclose Lux’s medical condition, citing medical privacy laws.
