An accident involving a work van and a pickup truck on Wednesday morning left one person dead and several injured.

The two-car rollover happened on I-195 eastbound, west of exit 20, in Marion at about 6:45 a.m.

A press release issue by the State Police said a preliminary investigation by Trooper Antone Pereira indicates that a 2006 Ford Econovan was traveling east on Route 195, when for reasons still under investigation, it lost control and rolled over.

One man was killed in the crash. Three other men were transported to a Rhode Island hospital for treatment, and a fourth victim was transported to Tobey Hospital in Wareham, but was later taken by Med Flight to a Boston hospital.

The other vehicle involved was a Ford pickup truck.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing, and police are not releasing the identities of the victims at this time.

The left travel lane of Route 195 eastbound was closed for approximately an hour and a half for the crash investigation. State Police were assisted by members of the Massachusetts State Police Crime Scene Services Section and Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, Marion Fire and EMS, and Mass Department of Transportation.
