Malden man dead after car crashes into tractor-trailer on I- 495 in Andover

A 40-year-old Malden man driving a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette was killed in a crash with a tractor-trailer Monday night on Interstate 495 in Andover, State Police said.

State Police identified the victim of the crash, which occurred around 11:20 p.m. Monday night, as Christopher Rigano on Tuesday afternoon.

A preliminary investigation indicates that the collision occurred when Rigano, who was driving south, lost control of his Corvette, struck a 2005 Honda Accord driven by a 41-year-old Spencer man, and then went under the trailer portion of a tractor-trailer being driven by a 43-year-old North Dakota man that was also heading south, State Police said.


The drivers of the Honda and the tractor-trailer suffered “no apparent injuries,” State Police said.

The reasons why Rigano lost control of his Corvette remain under investigation, State Police said.
