NORTON, Mass. (WPRI) — Massachusetts State Police are investigating a two-car crash that killed a Randolph man early Saturday morning.
Troopers were called to I-495 northbound in Norton around 2:30 a.m.
A preliminary investigation revealed a Nissan Maxima hit the back of a Toyota RAV4 just before the Route 123 exit.
The Nissan lost control, veered off the road, rolled over and caught fire while the RAV4 swerved to the left and struck a guardrail, state police said.
Crews extinguished the fire and located a man, identified as 52-year-old Jeffrey Tagger, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
The two people in the RAV4, a 48-year-old Brockton man who was driving and his passenger, a 34-year-old Brockton man were transported to the hospital with minor injuries.
It’s unclear what led up to the crash.
