WORCESTER, Mass. — Two people from New Britain are dead after a crash in Worcester, Massachusetts over the weekend, officials said.
The crash happened just after 7 a.m. on Route 290 eastbound by exit 24, according to Massachusetts State Police.
Officials said a 2009 Toyota Matrix, driven by an unidentified 52-year-old Worcester man, was driving in the right lane when he swerved into the middle lane and struck the right rear corner of the Connecticut residents' pick-up truck.

The driver, 65-year-old Luc Morin, and the passenger, 52-year-old Christine Banavige, were both pronounced dead at the scene by first responders.
The Matrix continued to drive eastbound for a short distance before coming to a stop in the breakdown lane, according to police.
The driver was taken to UMass Medical Center-Lakeside for possible minor injuries.
Police and other Massachusetts state law enforcement divisions are investigating to determine if any charges will be filed against the Matrix driver.
