An early morning crash in Hanson that claimed the life of a 59-year-old Halifax man remains under investigation.
The single vehicle crash happened around 12:45 a.m. Monday morning.
Afienko was alone in the car and was pronounced dead when Hanson Fire-Rescue and Hanson Police arrived on scene.
State Police investigators were called to the scene earlier in the morning.
The car, more than two hours after the crash, was seen covered over, sitting on a front lawn of a home on Route 27. The crash happened roughly 200 yards from the Hanson Police station. Police say the car, struck a fence, and then a tree, on the west-bound side of Main Street, and came to rest on the lawn, diagonally across from Reed Street.
The crash scene was being protected by two Hanson Police cruisers, until it was cleared right around 4:30 a.m. Monday morning.
The crash remains under investigation by Sergeant James Perron and Michael Casey as well as officers Brian Snow and Douglas Smith.
