UPDATE: Victim of I-93 crash identified

ANDOVER — A Saugus man was killed in a car accident today involving a tractor-trailer on Interstate 93 South in Andover.

According to state police the fatal crash happened about 1:25 a.m. south of the Interstate 495 interchange.

Police said Louis J. Kardoose, driving a 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe, rear-ended a 1997 Freightliner tractor-trailer operated by a 34-year-old North Carolina man in the rightmost travel lane.

Kardoose, 37, was declared dead at the scene. The North Carolina man was not injured.

It is still unknown what caused Kardoose to rear-end the tractor-trailer.

The two rightmost lanes of Route 93 and the breakdown lane at the crash site were closed for just under three hours to accommodate the rescue response, crash investigation and removal of debris.

The Andover Fire Department and Highway Division of Massachusetts Department of Transportation assisted at the scene.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
