OLD ORCHARD BEACH, Maine — An Old Orchard Beach man died early Monday morning after a crash on Interstate 495 in Tewksbury, Massachusetts.

Joshua Avery, 42, was the driver and single occupant of a 2007 Mercury Mariner that crashed and rolled into the median on I-495 in Tewksbury, Massachusetts State Police said in a release.

Avery was ejected from the vehicle. He was taken by ambulance to Lowell General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Massachusetts State Police continue to investigate the crash, including whether speed was a potential factor. Avery was not wearing a seatbelt, police said.

Two southbound lanes of the interstate were closed for about two hours following the crash.
