Franklin: Speeding likely cause of crash that killed Middleboro man

Police say speed appears to be the cause of a rollover accident on I-495-N that killed a man from Middleboro.

The crash near Exit 16 in Franklin happened late Friday afternoon.

State police say an SUV driven by the unidentified 46-year-old victim was speeding and weaving into the right lane when it rear-ended a Jeep.

That caused the SUV to veer off the highway and strike a rocky outcropping.

The driver of the Jeep, a New Hampshire man, wasn’t hurt.

The investigation is ongoing.
