Massachusetts State Police say one person was killed and two others were seriously hurt in a three-vehicle crash in the Berkshires.

Police say a Jeep Grand Cherokee was driving south behind a Ford Mustang on Route 8 in Cheshire just after 7 a.m. Sunday.

When the Jeep tried to pass the Ford, a Hyundai Accent approached from the opposite direction.

The preliminary investigation shows that the Jeep struck the Ford when pulling back into the southbound lane, which caused them to strike the Hyundai, which rolled over.

The driver of the Hyundai, a 61-year-old North Adams man, died. The driver of the Jeep, a 29-year-old Adams man, and the driver of the Ford, a 37-year-old Adams man, were both taken to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield with serious injuries.

No names were released.

It's unclear if anyone will face charges.

The crash is under investigation.
