Massachusetts State Police initially said a person was ejected from a vehicle, but later said the victim was outside a truck inspecting an equipment malfunction when another vehicle, a sedan driven by a 17-year-old, hit the truck.
The victim was identified as a 30-year-old man from West New York, New Jersey. His name has not been released.
The crash took place on the westbound side of the highway near the Cambridge Street Overpass, police said.
