    Two people were killed Tuesday when the vehicle they were in crashed into a tree in Stoughton, Massachusetts.

    The black pick-up truck was unrecognizable after crashing into a tree on Plain Street in Stoughton around 5:15 p.m.

    SkyRanger footage showed multiple parts of the vehicle strewn across the scene.

    Wednesday, police identified the truck's driver, 48-year-old Michael Luddington of Kingston, and 38-year-old passenger Angela Goodrich of Stoughton as the victims killed in the crash

    "It's awful, especially down the street because it's a quiet neighborhood," Courtney Wagner said.

    Emily Hoffman was nearby when the accident happened. She said it was scary seeing it.

    "I was going for a walk," Hoffman said. "When I was walking down, I heard a big bang, and I saw the pole shaking. So I walked up to see what it was and I saw the truck on its side."

    Stoughton Police Chief Donna McNamara said the accident is under investigation.

    "I do not want to speculate on anything at this time," she said. "It is a serious tragedy and a serious crash scene as you can see from the debris and the scene itself."

    People who live in the area say it's a dangerous stretch of road, and they've seen a number of crashes in the area in the past.

    "People speed down here," Wagner said. "They even have police monitors and stuff down here. Coming over that hill there, it's kind of like a straight shot into the tree almost."

    Police and the Norfolk County District Attorney's Office are continuing to investigate the cause of the crash.
