A Massachusetts woman has died after her car swerved into the back of a tractor trailer in Freetown Monday afternoon.

Massachusetts State Police say the 32-year-old Raynham woman was driving on Route 24 North near exit 9 around 3:40 p.m. when she somehow lost control and crashed into the back of the truck that was parked on the shoulder of the breakdown lane.

The victim was the only person inside the car. Officials say she was pronounced dead at the scene.

The truck driver was in the cab of the truck at the time. No word on that driver's condition as of yet.

Massachusetts State Police are still investigating the circumstances of the crash.

The breakdown lane and right travel lane were closed until 7:01p.m. to allow for rescue operations, investigation and clean up.
