West Roxbury Man Dies in Morton Street Wreck

State Police say a 53-year-old driver died at the scene when his truck left Morton Street and hit a tree.

The truck was headed east when the wreck took place just after 10 p.m. Monday, according to State Police. The driver, Lawrence Mulhern of West Roxbury, was the only person in the 2013 Dodge Ram, state police said.

The Ram may have been involved in a hit-and-run just before the deadly crash, according to Universal Hub. The truck had struck a van at Morton and Blue Hill Avenue, according to that account.

WCVB reports the truck flipped over before hitting the tree.
