MATTAPOISETT, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – Mass. State Police are investigating a fatal single car crash that occurred on the eastbound side of I-195 in Mattapoisett on Sunday.

Troopers responded to the crash in the vicinity of Exit 19 in Mattapoisett at about 12:30 p.m.

Preliminary investigation indicates a 1995 Dodge Caravan with numerous occupants rolled over and left the roadway, coming to rest in the wood-line. Three occupants were initially trapped in the car, and one of the occupants was declared dead on scene.

A portion of the high way was closed for a short period of time to allow for the landing of a medical helicopter.

Troopers closed both the eastbound and westbound lanes at about 1:10 p.m., but both lanes have since re-opened.

The names of the victims and the hospitals they were transported to are not being released at this time.

The crash remains under investigation.
