The two other drivers involved, both women, 60 and 55 years old, were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
A fourth car that was in a parking lot was somehow damaged in the crash.
Granite Street was closed in both directions at the Braintree line while the scene was cleaned up. It has since reopened.
People who live in the area say it can be a very dangerous stretch of roadway.
State police say speed is believed to be a major factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.
