FALMOUTH, Mass. (AP) - Police say a Rhode Island man has died after his pickup truck struck a tree on Cape Cod.

The 50-year-old Woonsocket, R.I., man died at a hospital after the crash in Falmouth at about 6 p.m. Tuesday.

His name was not immediately made public.

Falmouth fire Lt. Bruce Girouard said the impact was on the truck’s driver’s side and the vehicle as wrapped around the tree. It took rescuers nearly 45 minutes to extract the driver.

The driver, the only occupant of the truck, had multiple injuries and his condition deteriorated when he was freed.

The cause remains under investigation.
