The State Police Accident Reconstruction Team is investigating a deadly crash involving a large box truck and a passenger vehicle near the Holyoke Soldiers Home.
According to Holyoke Police Lt. Jim Albert told 22News a western Massachusetts woman is dead and two others in the car were injured and taken to Baystate Medical Center. The driver of the truck is okay.
No word yet on the cause or if any tickets will be handed out.

Traffic in the area was heavy and Cherry Street will stay closed for several hours , said Lt. Albert.
