One person dead after pickup strikes tree in Montague

Posted: Updated:
MONTAGUE, Mass. (AP) - Authorities say one person is dead after a pickup truck struck a tree in Montague and burst into flames.
 
The vehicle struck the tree just off Route 47 at about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.
 
Sgt. Richard Suchanek says Montague Center firefighters were first to the scene, and had nearly put out the flames when the gas tank caught fire, engulfing the truck.
 
The driver was the sole occupant of the vehicle. The truck is registered to a Montague resident but the victim's name has not been released.
 
The crash remains under investigation but police say speed may have been a factor.
