SWAMPSCOTT — State Police will lead an investigation into a fiery car crash early Saturday afternoon at the request of the Swampscott Police because the driver of the vehicle is Police Chief Ron Madigan’s nephew.

“The Swampscott Police asked Massachusetts State Police to handle the investigation, even though the crash occurred on a road with local jurisdiction, because of a familial relationship between the driver of the vehicle and the Swampscott chief,” State Police Spokesperson David Procopio said in an email Monday evening. “It is something Massachusetts State Police does for local departments periodically, upon their request, to avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest. It is the proper course of action and Chief Madigan should be commended for initiating it.”
