OXFORD, Mass. (AP) - State police say a wheelbarrow left on a south-central Massachusetts highway led to a fatal car crash.

State police say 32-year-old Steven Richards of Webster was traveling southbound on Interstate 395 around 1 p.m. Saturday when he came across the wheelbarrow and lost control trying to avoid it.

The car overturned and Richards was fatally injured when he was thrown from the vehicle.

Police are investigating how the wheelbarrow came to be in the road, near Exit 5 at Oxford.
