    A man was killed Saturday when his vehicle rolled over on Route 140 in Lakeville, Massachusetts, according to state police.

    The single vehicle crash happened just before 6 p.m. on the northbound side of the road. Police say Frederick Maxfield, 61, of East Freetown, lost control of his van, causing the vehicle to catch fire and trap him inside.

    Maxfield was the only person inside the van.

    Several other drivers pulled over and were able to free Maxfield as well as give him emergency medical help before first responders arrived on scene.

    Maxfield was taken to Morton Hospital in Taunton, where he later died.

    The crash is under investigation.
