Truck Driver from Springfield Involved in Deadly CT Crash

MIDDLEBURY, Conn. (AP) — State police say a Massachusetts woman was killed in a chain reaction crash on Interstate 84 east in Middlebury.

Police say 41-year-old Laurie Carvalho was killed after she slowed for traffic Tuesday afternoon and a tractor trailer rear-ended her SUV, setting off a series of collisions between four other cars.

According to a police report, another person was seriously hurt in the crash, while seven others sustained non-life threatening injuries.

It was not immediately clear Wednesday if the truck driver, Juan Martinez of Springfield, Mass., would face charges. A state police spokesman said the accident remained under investigation.
