WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — A 50-year-old man was killed and an 18-year-old woman was injured Friday evening during what appears to have been a hit-and-run crash on a Massachusetts highway, state police said Saturday.

The crash happened on I-290 Friday evening. State police say the two had been driving in a Jeep Wrangler onto the interchange ramp to Interstate 190 when their vehicle went over a barrier on the overpass and landed on I-290 below.

The driver, who police have not yet identified, died on the scene. The passenger suffered minor injuries.

Police say their initial investigation suggests a second vehicle may have been involved in the crash.


They’re seeking any information from other motorists who may have witnessed the crash, which closed part of I-290 for about three hours Friday night.
