A Connecticut man was killed Tuesday morning in a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 290 in Marlborough, Massachusetts, according to state police.

Two passengers in Johnson's vehicle, a 22-year-old woman and a 14-year-old boy, were also taken to UMass for treatment of minor injuries.

The driver of the Subaru was taken to Marlborough Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

The exact cause of the crash remains under investigation. So far, no charges have been filed.
