A Norwood woman died in a crash involving a tractor trailer, an SUV and a pickup truck on Route 1 south in Sharon Tuesday afternoon, according to State Police.
The woman, 29, was a passenger in a 2017 Ford Escape that struck the tractor trailer, and then a Ford pickup truck, State Police said in a statement.
She suffered serious injuries and was transported to Rhode Island Hospital where she was pronounced dead, State Police said in a statement.
Her name was not immediately released.
State troopers responded around 12:05 p.m. to a report of a crash near Old Post Road. The Escape crashed into the back of a 2010 Peterbilt tractor trailer that was stopped in the breakdown lane, State Police said.
The Escape, driven by a 32-year-old Norwood man, then spun into the left lane and struck a 2015 Ford pick-up driving by, the statement said.
The two drivers were taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries. The driver and passenger of the trailer truck were outside of the vehicle and uninjured, State Police said.
The cause of the crash is under investigation by State Police.
