NORTH HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — A 23-year-old died on Sunday from a three-vehicle collision on I-91 South in North Haven.

Just before 9 p.m., Connecticut state troopers said a Honda Accord was driving in the left-center lane on I-91 South near exit 9. A Subaru Wrx Premium was following closely behind at a high speed when an initial collision took place between the two cars.

This first crash caused the Honda to spin out of control into the center median where it struck a metal bean guardrail. The Subaru’s driver was ejected from their car as a result, according to state troopers.

A tractor-trailer was then traveling in the left center lane when it struck the driver in the roadway.

Police identified the driver as Cassandra Leigh Carlson, from North Haven. She was pronounced dead on the scene.

Both sides of I-91 in North Haven were shut down for several hours following the crash, and emergency roadwork was underway on Monday morning. The highway has since been reopened, according to the Connecticut DOT.
