One person was killed early Saturday morning in a wrong-way crash on Interstate 93 south in Milton, Massachusetts, state police confirmed.
Troopers were notified of a wrong-way driver just before 5 a.m. When they arrived at the southbound side of I-93, near Exit 3, state police said a Ford Escape sport utility vehicle had caused a four-vehicle crash, striking one vehicle head-on.
The impact of the head-on crash with another Escape caused that vehicle to crash into a jersey barrier and the wrong-way driver to roll onto its roof. The vehicle was then struck by two other vehicles, police said.

The wrong-way driver, Stephen Zorn, 24, of Stoughton, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
Police say one person was ejected from their car, while, in a separate car, another person was trapped inside.
The driver of the other Escape, a 29-year-old Plymouth woman, was taken to Boston Medical Center for serious injuries. The driver of a Mercedes C300, a 50-year-old Wrentham man, was taken to Milton Hospital, also for serious injuries.
The driver of Kia Sportage, a 38-year-old Raynham woman, was also taken to Milton Hospital with minor injuries.
All southbound travel lanes were closed for nearly two hours leading to major traffic delays as emergency crews worked to clear the scene.
State police are still investigating where and why Zorn entered the wrong side of the highway.
