Two people were killed early Sunday morning in a single-vehicle crash in Fall River, Massachusetts.
State police said troopers responded to the crash at 1:35 a.m. on Route 24, just south of exit 8A.
Authorities said a preliminary investigation indicated that the driver of the vehicle was traveling northbound when, for unknown reasons, veered off towards the right of the roadway and struck a tree.
The driver, a 36-year-old man, and his passenger, a 23-year-old man, both of Providence, Rhode Island, were transported to Charlton Hospital where they were pronounced dead. Another 23-year-old passenger was transported to Rhode Island Hospital for treatment.
The identities of the victims have not been released pending notification of next of kin.
The exact cause of the crash remains under investigation by state police.
