One person is dead and another is in police custody after a crash Tuesday in Brockton, Massachusetts.

Three vehicles were involved in the crash at the intersection of Route 123 and Pearl Street around 3:15 p.m., according to state police. A 911 call was made from a Speedway gas station in the area, the Plymouth County District Attorney's Office said.

Police said that the crash resulted in a fatality and that a suspect was in custody. The DA's office later said the male driver of an Acura involved in the crash had been charged with disorderly conduct for an incident that happened at the scene, adding that more charges were likely to be filed.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation tweeted shortly after 3:30 p.m. that westbound lanes of Route 123 were closed in the area.

State police and the DA's office say they are continuing to investigate.
