Fenway Park public-address announcer Carl Beane, 59, was killed earlier today in a one-car automobile accident in Sturbridge, Massachusetts.

According to Patrick Johnson of the Republican, “Beane was apparently driving on Holland Road when his vehicle went off the road and struck a tree and then a wall in the area of 233 Holland Road.”

Beane had held the Red Sox job since 2003.
