    One man was killed and another was injured in an overnight rollover crash in Sharon, Massachusetts.

    Massachusetts State Police said the crash happened on Interstate 95 northbound near exit 8, at about 12:30 a.m.

    A preliminary investigation by police indicated that a Lexus IS300 was traveling in the right lane when the driver, 27-year-old Sean Kearney of Quincy, attempted to maneuver into the adjacent lane. Kearney somehow lost control of the vehicle, causing it to rollover and crash in the median.

    Police said as a result of the crash Kearney and his 37-year-old passenger were ejected from the vehicle.

    Kearney was pronounced dead at the scene. The passenger was transported to Boston Medical Center with serious injuries.

    A woman who was traveling northbound in a Nissan Sentra had swerved to avoid debris from the Lexus and struck the right side guardrail. She was not hurt.

    Police are still investigating the exact cause of the crash.
