According to preliminary reports by the Massachusetts State Police, a black 2005 Land Rover operated by Adriana Ribeiro, 37, of Swampscott, was traveling in the third travel lane at the time of the accident.

The victim was crossing into the middle lane when he was hit by a white 2000 Nissan Altima operated by Guerbie Gilles, 22, of Somerville. She was transported to the hospital for evaluation.
The 80-year-old man, identified as Dominic Aricri, was taken to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
