RAYNHAM, Mass. (AP) — One man has died following a head-on collision on Route 44 in Raynham.

Police say two vehicles crashed at about 8 p.m. Thursday, killing a man in one vehicle and injuring a woman and a man inside the second.

Police say it appeared one of the cars crossed the center line.

Fire Chief James Januse said a man was trapped inside his vehicle with severe injuries when firefighters arrived on the scene. It took about 25 minutes to extricate him.

Medics performed CPR on the man before transporting him to an area hospital, where he died.

Januse says first responders did everything they could to save the man’s life.

Police have not released the identities of the victims.
