The victims who were killed were later identified by Massachusetts State Police as Luc Morin, 65, and Christine Banavige, 52.

A car, a 2009 Toyota Matrix, was also involved in the crash with the truck, a 2001 Nissan Frontier, about 7 a.m. near Exit 24, police said. The car's driver was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

State Police said the Matrix was traveling in the right lane when it swerved into the middle lane and hit the Frontier in the back right corner. That caused the truck to spinout, rollover and come to a stop on to of a guardrail, according to troopers.

The crash remained under investigation Monday to determine if there will be criminal charges, according to troopers.
