VIDEO: One person is dead after a fiery crash in which a vehicle crashed into a barrier in South Boston and fell approximately 40 feet onto the roadway below. Several ramps were closed in the area of the Southeast Expressway, and traffic was heavy for hours after the crash, which occurred around 10 a.m. MBTA and Amtrak service was temporarily halted as a result of the crash. Boston Fire Commissioner Paul Burke confirmed the vehicle crashed into the barrier of the Massachusetts Avenue Connector at the intersection with the Frontage Road and plummeted an estimated 40 feet onto the exit ramp below. "It was on fire when it landed down below, on the ramp down here, and the person inside did not survive," Burke said. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner was seen in the area during the investigation.
