PLYMOUTH – A Watertown woman was killed over the weekend when police say she veered into oncoming traffic and struck another vehicle head-on.
The crash – which was reported Sunday around 12 p.m. in the area of Main Street and Kellogg Avenue – left two people trapped in the second vehicle, which caught on fire. Before first responders could arrive, good Samaritans helped get them out of the burning vehicle and to safety.
The victim who died in the accident, who had been driving a Dodge Charger, was identified on Tuesday as 39-year-old Maryanne Spry, of Watertown.
Police said it appears as though Spry was heading east on Main Street when she veered into the westbound lane, striking a Rav4 that caught on fire after the collision. Police and medics performed life-saving techniques on Spry before she was taken to Waterbury Hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead.
Police have not indicated the two people who were trapped in the burning Rav4 suffered any injuries.
