Helen Mehlman was killed in a crash in West Hartford last weekend.

A 93-year-old West Hartford woman has died from injuries sustained in a head-on collision on the morning of Saturday, March 9.

Helen Mehlman, who lived in an assisted living community on Hamilton Heights, was killed in a crash on Fern Street and Fernwood Road in West Hartford, according to local police.

One person was in a 1997 Toyota Corolla that crossed over the double yellow line and struck a 2011 Toyota Camry with a New York registration, according to police. Four people were in the Camry. 

The crash happened just after 10:30 a.m. at the crest of a hill and it appeared that neither driver had a chance to stop, according to police.

All five people involved in the crash were transported to local hospitals. Mehlman suffered the most serious injuries, according to police.
