A 44-year-old Massachusetts woman was ejected from her vehicle and killed when she hit a pickup truck on Interstate 495 in Lawrence, officials said.
State police said Sheila Purpora was pronounced dead Wednesday at the accident scene near I-495 exit 42B.
Purpora’s Toyota Scion and a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck driven by an unidentified 65-year-old Amesbury man rolled over after the collision around 7 a.m.
The man was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Lawrence General Hospital. State police said no charges have been filed against him.
Two lanes were closed as the damaged vehicles were removed from the road, causing significant traffic delays during the Wednesday morning commute.
State police collision analysts are investigating the crash.
