A 76-year-old Voluntown woman was killed in a crash in Griswold early Sunday morning.

Police said Gloria Barrie, 76, of Shetucket Turnpike in Voluntown, was traveling eastbound on Route 138 when she tried to pass a car turning left onto Bitgood Road just before 11:30 p.m.

Barrie hit the guardrail, then hit a utility pole and suffered fatal injuries, according to state police.

The other driver was unharmed.

The crash forced police to shut down the road for a while. The road has since been reopened.
