A 23-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene of a single-car crash after her vehicle went off Robertson Pond Road and landed upside down in a creek, the State Highway Patrol said.
Maria Carolina Preito of Wendell was trapped in the car, troopers said.
The crash happened shortly before 9 a.m. Monday when Prieto’s eastbound Nissan sedan went off the right side of the road and she overcorrected and went off the left side and down into the creek, accident-investigation troopers determined.
