    Another woman, believed to be driving, was taken to Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton by ambulance.

    The extent of their injuries is unknown.

    A preliminary investigation suggests that following an impact with another vehicle, the vehicle traveled off the road where it struck trees and a utility pole.

    Police said the victim in the second vehicle was taken to an area hospital where his condition is unclear.

    Route 24 northbound, between exits 18 and 19, had been closed for more than four hours while National Grid worked to lift the utility pole and live wires off the vehicle. At one point, the entire roadway was shut down due to the severity of the crash.

    The exact cause of the crash remains under investigation by Massachusetts State Police with assistance from the MSP Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section and the MSP Crime Scene Services Section.
