DOUGLAS — A 21-year-old Webster woman was killed when her car collided head-on with a tree on Route 16 about 10 Thursday night. Tori Miller, with a last known address of 79 North Main St., Webster, suffered serious injuries and was pronounced dead at Harrington Memorial Hospital in Webster, police said.
Police received a number of 911 calls reporting the accident, and when they arrived, they saw a heavily damaged 1998 Volkswagen Jetta against a tree. The crash was on Route 16 about a mile west of Cedar Street near the Webster line in a wooded area of town.
Ms. Miller, who was the driver, was being attended to by a nurse who had been passing by, according to police. Rescuers from the Fire and Police departments worked to free Ms. Miller from the car. She was transported to Harrington Memorial.
The two passengers in the car, a 3-year-old child and a 26-year-old man, were taken to UMass Memorial Medical Center — University Campus in Worcester for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Police did not release their identities.
A full investigation into the crash is being conducted by police Officer Mark Kaminski and the Central Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council Accident Reconstruction Unit. The car is believed to have been going west on Route 16, when it veered off the road and onto the westbound shoulder. The car traveled a short distance on the shoulder and then hit the tree head-on. It is unknown if alcohol or speed were factors.
