A one-car crash claimed the life of a man in Falmouth over the weekend. His identity is being withheld for the time being.

One fatality as a result of the single-car crash...

According to a post on the Massachusetts State Police website and its social media pages, it was just after 5:30 pm on Sunday when Massachusetts State Troopers assigned to the Bourne Barracks responded to a car that had veered off Route 28 in Falmouth and then crashed into the wood line. The crash resulted in fatal injuries to the driver. There were no passengers in the vehicle.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation...

According to State Police, the preliminary investigation indicates that a 2006 Saab was heading northbound on Route 28 in the vicinity of the off-ramp to Route 151 at around 5:36 pm when, for reasons that are still under investigation, it exited the right edge of the road, traveled through the grass infield, and then entered the wood line and struck several trees.
