    One person was killed and another injured in a 2-vehicle crash on Interstate 95 north in Boxford, Massachusetts on Saturday night.

    State police responded to the crash scene just before 6 p.m. in the area of Exit 53, shutting down two lanes of traffic.

    According to police, a preliminary investigation found that a 2008 Chevrolet Impala struck a 2002 Saturn SL2 that was stationary in the breakdown lane.

    After colliding, police said the Chevrolet continued northbound and subsequently veered off the right side of the road. 

    The 45-year-old male driver of the Saturn, from Amesbury, Massachusetts, was transported to Anna Jacques Hospital. He was later pronounced dead. 

    The driver of the Chevrolet, Nathaniel Armstrong, 22, of Amesbury, Massachusetts, and his 22-year-old male passenger were both uninjured. 

    Armstrong has been arrested and charged with multiple alleged violations including Motor Vehicle Homicide/OUI Liquor by Negligent Operation, and Speeding. 

    This is an ongoing investigation at the time assisted by the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, Crime Scene Services Section and detectives from the Essex County District Attorney's Office.
