Multi-vehicle crash Monday on Route 495 claims life of driver



A Massachusetts man was killed late last night after a serious crash.

According to Dave Procopio of the Massachusetts State Police, at approximately 11:20 p.m. Massachusetts State Troopers responded to a crash involving a personal vehicle and a tractor-trailer on Route 495 in Andover that resulted in a fatality.

Preliminary investigation suggests that Christopher Rigano, 40, of Malden, was operating a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette southbound when he lost control of his car, struck another vehicle, and then went under the trailer portion of a tractor-trailer that was also southbound.

Rigano was determined to be deceased at the scene.

The other vehicles involved were a 2005 Honda Accord sedan operated by a 41-year-old Spencer man, who had no apparent injuries, and a 2005 Western Star truck operated by a 43-year-old North Dakota man, who also had no apparent injuries.

Family and friends are trying to come to grips with the sudden and tragic loss of Chris.

The facts and circumstances of the crash are under investigation by the State Police-Andover Barracks, Troop A, the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, the State Police Crime Scene Services Section, and the State Police Detective Unit for Essex County.

Area roads have been deadly the last few days as as one was killed in a serious Route 95 crash that sent three to the hospital, including two children, a woman was killed in a head-on crash with a tractor-trailer near the Cape Cod Canal, and a 19-year-old was killed in a Massachusetts box truck crash.
