State police are looking for a truck that was carrying a mattress that fell onto Route 128 in Burlington and caused a fatal crash.

Police on Wednesday also released the names of the victims of the crash that occurred at about 3 p.m. Tuesday.

Fifty-six-year-old Frida Litvak of Framingham slammed on her brakes to avoid the twin mattress in the southbound lanes and was struck from behind by a pickup truck driven by 43-year-old Andrew Lawendowski of Charlton.

Litvak died and Lawendowski suffered minor injuries. Both were wearing seat belts.

Police are looking for what they describe as a dump truck with a white cab and a dark bed that was carrying several mattresses. Two men were believed to be in the cab.
