Conn. woman struck, killed on I-91 in Mass.

Posted: Updated:

LONGMEADOW, Mass. (AP) - Massachusetts state police say a Connecticut woman walking on Interstate 91 in Longmeadow has been struck and killed by a tractor-trailer.

State police say 22-year-old Shamonica Bates of Hartford was struck on the southbound side of the highway at about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday near the Connecticut state line.

Police say their preliminary investigation suggests Bates was with five other people from Connecticut in a 2006 Nissan Maxima when she got out of the car, which was parked on the shoulder of the highway. Police said she walked into the truck's path and was fatally injured.

A portion of I-91 was closed during the investigation, but has since reopened.
