One person died in a multi-car crash on Interstate 95 in Norwood Friday night.

State Police said three vehicles were involved in the crash, which happened at about 4 p.m. near Neponset Street on the southbound side of the highway.

A preliminary investigation into the crash reveals that a 2013 Range Rover operated by Charles Iarrobino, 53, of Foxboro was traveling north on Route 95 when for reasons that remain under investigation, it crossed over the grass median into the southbound travel lanes and struck a 2000 Toyota Camry. Iarrobino was transported by ambulance to Norwood Hospital with minor injuries.

A 59-year-old woman from Foster, Rhode Island was a passenger in the Toyota and she was pronounced deceased at the scene. Two additional occupants of the Toyota, a 28-year-old Providence, Rhode Island man and a 62–year-old Foster, Rhode Island man sustained serious injuries and were transported by medical helicopter to Boston Medical Center.

The 2013 Range Rover had a 5-year-old male passenger who was transported by ambulance to Norwood Hospital for evaluation. The passenger of the 2012 Ford Edge has been identified as Katlynn Landry, 25, of Quincy.

The Range Rover then struck a 2012 Ford Edge before coming to rest. The operator of the Ford, Nina Battista, 25, of Quincy and an unidentified passenger were transported by ambulance to Norwood Hospital.

The facts and circumstances surrounding this crash remain under investigation at this time. State Police expect to release more information over the weekend. 
A medical helicopter landed near the highway to transport a victim to a local hospital.

The crash created huge traffic delays in the region. The southbound side of the highway was completely shutdown at one point. It reopened by about 7 p.m.
