Police say the driver of the Wrangler -- another 17-year-old boy -- was driving southbound when he attempted to cross multiple lanes to take the exit. The Jeep struck a Toyota Corolla, which caused it to roll over into the adjacent infield.

Police say the victim was ejected from the vehicle. He was taken by ambulance to Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton where he was pronounced dead.

In addition to the driver, there were four passengers in the Jeep, according to police. All other occupants of the vehicles, including the 28-year-old woman who was driving the Toyota, were transported to area hospitals for observation or treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The facts and circumstances of the crash remain under investigation, police said.
