FRANKLIN, Mass. (AP) - Massachusetts State Police say a man who died when the pickup truck he was driving crashed into the woods along Interstate 495 in Franklin was from Rhode Island.

Police on Friday identified the victim of the Thursday morning crash as 23-year-old Zachary Lemir, of Warwick, Rhode Island.

The preliminary investigation indicates that Lemir was driving north at about 6 a.m. Thursday when his pickup went off the road to the right and into the woods. Lemir, the vehicle’s only occupant, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash remains under investigation.

The accident was the second fatal crash on I-495 in as many days. Two people died in a head-on crash in Mansfield on Wednesday.
