TAUNTON, Mass. – Authorities say that an elderly man driving the wrong road on a Massachusetts highway has caused a fiery crash that killed him and seriously injured six others.

The spokeswoman for state police Dave Procopio says the crash happened around 11:30 AM on Wednesday at Interstate 495 in Taunton.

Procopio says the 84-year-old driver from Foxborough was driven south on the north side of the highway when his car hit at least two others and caused serious injury to several people in these vehicles.

Man’s car broke into flames and he was pronounced dead on stage. The police closed the northern lanes for hours, but they were expected to resume Thursday for Thanksgiving travelers.

Procopio said the police did not decide how the man ended up on the wrong side of the highway.
