Police say a Jeep Grand Cherokee was driving south behind a Ford Mustang on Route 8 in Cheshire just after 7 a.m. Sunday.
When the Jeep tried to pass the Ford, a Hyundai Accent approached from the opposite direction.
The preliminary investigation shows that the Jeep struck the Ford when pulling back into the southbound lane, which caused them to strike the Hyundai, which rolled over.
The driver of the Hyundai, a 61-year-old North Adams man, died. The other two drivers were taken to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield with serious injuries.
No names were released.
The crash is under investigation.
