On a day when icy road conditions spun cars out of control across the state, a 24-year-old Framingham man was killed Friday when his pickup truck collided with the concrete abutment of a bridge on Interstate 495 in Hopkinton, police said.
The man, whose identity was not released, was alone, driving his 2004 Ford F250 southbound at around 8:30 a.m., when the pickup left the road and slammed into the Fruit Street overpass on the right side of the highway, State Police said in a statement.
The truck was severely damaged, Hopkinton Fire Lt. Scott Jurasek said, and the man was taken to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, where he was pronounced dead. No other vehicles were involved in the crash. State Police and the Hopkinton and Westborough fire departments restricted traffic to two lanes for about an hour and a half.
