TOLLAND, Conn. (WTNH) — Connecticut State Police confirmed Friday that one person was killed in a multi-car accident on Interstate 84 in Tolland Thursday.
Lifestar responded to the scene to transport Madison Wetnicka, 21, of Sturbridge, Massachusetts to Hartford Hospital with serious injuries after she was ejected from her vehicle when it rolled over in the median. She later succumbed to her injuries.
Wetnicka reportedly collided with a vehicle driven by 25-year-old Yetzaveli Cervantes Almonte of Willington in the center lane, causing Wetnicka to lose control and continue into the median. Almonte did not suffer any reported injuries in the crash.
Interstate 84 eastbound between exits 68 and 69 was shut down for several hours following the crash.
