A truck appeared to be crushed under an overpass on Interstate 195 near the Dartmouth-Westport line on Friday.

The Bristol County District Attorney's Office confirmed that the lone passenger had died.

Richard Carroll, of New Canaan, CT, was transported to St. Luke's Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The crash was reported at about 2:30 p.m. on I-195 east near the Highland Avenue overpass.

The DA's office says the vehicle was traveling on I-195 East.

Pictures submitted by an NBC 10 viewer appear to show that a pickup truck went off the highway, up an embankment and became wedged under the bridge.

The crash remains under investigation.
