One of the cars involved was a MassDOT 2106 Ford F150 pickup truck that had responded to a report of debris in the highway.

Officials said the truck was pulled over in the left breakdown lane.

A 2000 Chevrolet van, driven by a 37-year-old Canton man, failed to slow down behind the trunk and swerved into a 2007 Cadillac STS sedan driven by a 26-year-old Brockton woman.

According to officials, the van then rolled over and hit the truck.

The 53-year-old South Weymouth man who had been driving the MassDOT truck was either entering or exiting his vehicle at the moment of impact, investigators believe. He was transported to Beth Israel-Deaconess Hospital with incapacitating injuries.

Officials said the van driver also suffered serious injuries. He was med-flighted to Beth Isreal-Deaconess.

The southbound side of the highway was briefly closed so a medical helicopter could land.

The sedan driver was taken to Boston Medical Center, the extent of her injuries is unknown.

Officials are still investigating the crash.

All lanes were reopened by 2:30 p.m.
