MIDDLEBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - State police say five people have died in a wrong-way crash on a Massachusetts highway.

Officials say the preliminary investigation indicates that a vehicle traveling south on the northbound side of Interstate 495 in Middleborough struck a vehicle heading in the correct direction early Monday morning.

The driver and lone occupant of the wrong-way vehicle died, as did four people in the other vehicle. The crash occurred at 12:11 a.m.

State police did not immediately release any information about the victims.

The northbound side of the highway was closed during the investigation, but has since reopened.
