LONGMEADOW, Mass. (AP) - A motorist has died after his sport utility vehicle crashed into a tractor trailer and caught fire on Interstate 91 in Longmeadow.
    
Massachusetts State Police say a driver in a Jeep Grand Cherokee swerved to avoid couch cushions in the roadway and struck the tractor trailer around 5:50 p.m. Sunday. They say the driver died in the resulting fire.
    
The victim's name was not immediately known and authorities have not released the name of the tractor-trailer driver.
    
State police are asking for information from anyone who saw a dark colored pickup truck pulled over in the northbound lane of I-91 just before the crash.
