Man dies in Peabody car crash on I-95

PEABODY -- Police say a man who died during a crash on Interstate 95 last night might have suffered a medical emergency just prior to the accident.

State police out of Danvers responded to a 7:42 p.m. report of a single-vehicle accident on I-95 at the exit ramp for Route 128 north and found a vehicle “off the shoulder of the roadway” with minimal damage, according to state police.

Peabody fire Capt. John Hosman said medics were already trying to resuscitate the man when Engine 7 arrived at the scene. The man was taken by ambulance to Lahey Clinic Medical Center North Shore. He was the only occupant of the vehicle. Police were withholding identification of the victim until they had notified his family.

State police said the crash was still under investigation, but that troopers “observed very little damage to the vehicle,” according to the press release. “Preliminary investigation by investigating troopers indicates that the operator suffered a medical emergency prior to going off the road.”

The ramp leading to Route 128 northbound was shut down while police investigated. The crash remains under investigation by state police.
