Hartford

GLASTONBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — A multi-vehicle crash on Route 2 westbound in Glastonbury, which closed part of the highway Monday night for several hours, is now fatal.

State police said at around 5:30 p.m. Monday, a Toyota Camry was on the shoulder of the highway, at the top of the Exit 9 on-ramp, when a Mercedes-Benzes struck the Camry’s rear. The impact of the crash caused the Camry to collide with the metal guard rail.

The Mercedes-Benzes driver refused medical treatment and did not complain of any pain, troopers said.

The Camry driver, identified as 58-year-old Marie Mathieu of Colchester, was transported to the hospital with serious injuries, where she later died.

The highway was closed between Exits 10 and 8. It has now been reopened.
