Preliminary investigation indicates that a 2015 Jeep Compass was northbound on Route 93, approaching Exit 17.

The unbelted operator, the Jeep’s sole occupant, was determined to be deceased on scene by responding emergency personnel. He is identified as Robert Smith, 59, of Cambridge. 

The crash remains under investigation by Troop H of the Massachusetts State Police, the State Police Detective Unit for Suffolk County, the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, and the State Police Crime Scene Services Section.
