Massachusetts State Police are investigating a 2-car crash in Braintree early Tuesday morning that claimed the life of a Taunton woman.

Police say that a 2003 Buick Rendezvous was going southbound on Interstate 93 southbound near exit 5 when, for some reason, the driver lost control. The car crashed into a guard rail before ending up in the right travel lane.

The driver of that car exited her vehicle and was standing behind it when another car traveling southbound hit the Buick and pushed it into the driver.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the other vehicle was taken to Boston Medical Center with serious injuries.

The crash is still under investigation.
