Taunton man killed after truck crashes, dangles off overpass on I-495





MILFORD, Mass. (WPRI) — An investigation is underway after a 24-year-old Taunton man was killed when his tow truck crashed on I-495 in Milford late Thursday night, according to Massachusetts State Police.


Crews responded to the overpass at Route 16 around 11:30 p.m. and found the cab of the truck hanging off the edge of the bridge.


The driver suffered fatal injuries, state police said. A 20-year-old Berkley woman was rescued from the cab and taken to the hospital with minor injuries.


A preliminary investigation revealed that the truck was driving northbound when, for reasons still under investigation, it veered out of its lane striking the median guardrail and coming to a rest up and over it.


The truck leaked fuel onto the roadway below but has since been cleaned up.


A crane was used to pull the cab back up onto the highway and the truck was then towed off the bridge.


Both roads have since been reopened.


No other cars were involved.


State police say they are still investigating whether speed or inclement weather conditions were contributing factors.
