A 38-year-old Stow man died Sunday evening in a two-car crash in Northborough that authorities believe was caused by his medical condition, State Police said.

The man, whose identity was not released Sunday evening pending family notification, was traveling on Interstate 290 between exits 24 and 25 when he struck a construction vehicle, said Robert Theve, a captain for the Northborough Fire Department.

Theve said the fire department received a call for the accident at 8:19 p.m.

Two people who were in the construction vehicle, which Theve described as a guard rail replacement car, declined to be transported to the hospital, he said.


The driver, a 30-year-old man from Johnston, R.I., suffered minor injuries, State Police said in a statement.

The man was transported in cardiac arrest to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, State Police said. He was pronounced dead at the hospital. His medical condition was not specified.

Officials said the right lane of I-290 was closed for a period of time Sunday night. The scene was cleared at 9:24 p.m.

State Police is investigating the crash. No further information was immediately available.
