SALISBURY (CBS) — A motorcyclist from Lowell has died from his injuries after a crash on I-495 in Salisbury Friday afternoon. The man was identified as 51-year-old Brian Barry.

Massachusetts State Police said Barry was pulled over on the left median when a Toyota Camry driving in the left lane braked because the driver “observed Barry and believed he was about to enter the left travel lane.”

A Ford F-150 coming up behind the Toyota swerved into the median to avoid the Toyota. The truck hit Barry, who was thrown over the guardrail, State Police said.

Barry was med-flighted to Beth Israel Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

It is unclear why Barry was pulled over in the median. The crash is still under investigation.
