The Maine woman who died Monday evening after a crash on a Massachusetts highway has been identified.
Amanda Coward, 32, of Poland was a passenger in a 2004 Volvo S80 northbound on Route 391 in Chicopee about 6:05 p.m. when the driver, a 31-year-old from Westfield, lost control of the vehicle and struck a 2001 Ford pickup, according to the Massachusetts State Police.
The Volvo then crashed into the guardrail on the left side of the road, while the Ford when off the right side of the road and rolled over, state police said. It’s not clear why the Volvo driver lost control of the vehicle, state police said.
Coward was taken to Bay State Medical Center in Springfield, where she was pronounced dead. The Volvo’s driver and a 31-year-old West Springfield man behind the wheel of the Ford were both taken to the same hospital, where they were treated for minor injuries, state police said.
State police did not identify either driver, and provided no further information.
The crash remains under investigation, and no charges have been filed, state police said.
