NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (AP) — Two people from Virginia have died in a car crash in Massachusetts, state police said.
The car was heading north on Route 140 in New Bedford at about 7:45 p.m. when it left the highway and struck a guardrail before entering the median and hitting a tree, state police said in a statement.
The driver, a 38-year-old man, and a passenger, a 35-year-old woman, were both pronounced dead at the scene. Both were from Newport News, Virginia, according to police.
Their names were not made public.
The crash remains under investigation but speed is believed to be a factor, state police said.
