    LEOMINSTER, Mass. - State Police are investigating a fatal rollover crash that killed a Woburn man on Tuesday night.

    Preliminary investigation shows Steven Murphy, 44, was driving a 2017 Ford Focus on Route 190 in Leominster at around 10:50 p.m. at a high speed.

    Just before Exit 7, Murphy's car traveled off the right side of the road and rolled over into the wood line. Investigators still haven't determined what caused Murphy to lose control of the vehicle.

    Murphy, the driver and sole occupant of the car, was pronounced dead at the scene.

    The breakdown and right lanes were closed for about four hours while emergency crews worked to remove the car and victim from the scene.

    The crash remains under investigation.
