An SUV driven by a 52-year-old woman was killed in a rollover crash.
This crash happened when the SUV she was driving struck a guardrail and then the side of a tractor-trailer. Pending notification of her next of kin, the woman’s name is being withheld, as reported by the State Police.
The 2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer rolled over and ejected the woman before stopping on its roof in the middle of both lanes. The tractor trailer blocked the left lane as it jackknifed across the road, police said.
The woman involved in the crash was taken by ambulance to Baystate Wing Hospital in Springfield. At the hospital she was pronounced dead. Meanwhile, it is unknown at this time whether the tractor trailer was injured. But in incidences like this, whiplash pain, head injuries and back pain are common.
A preliminary investigation indicated that the woman was traveling at a high rate of speed in the SUV when it crossed into the breakdown lane and struck the guardrail on the eastbound side of the highway. As the vehicle bounced off the guardrail, it hit the side of the 2001 Volvo tractor trailer. The crash remains under investigation.
State Police Lieutenant Tom Ryan said that traffic was backed up to Auburn.

Getting appropriate medical treatment is of course important. Working with insurance companies is also important to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.”
