Woman Killed in Plainville Crash

A woman was killed in a head-on collision on New Britain Avenue in Plainville Saturday night.

Plainville firefighters extricated Roxanne Marie Dias, 30, of Plantsville from her Mazda sedan after she and an oncoming car collided near 414 New Britain Avenue, in front of Manafort Brothers Inc., just west of the New Britain town line, police said.

A Life Star helicopter airlifted Dias to Hartford Hospital, but she later died at the hospital.

Marlena Wcislo, 25, was driving the other car in the crash, a Nissan SUV, and had one passenger in the car with her, Peter Wcislo, 26. American Medical Response transported the two New Britain residents to The Hospital of Central Connecticut in New Britain to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

New Britain Avenue was closed from Crooked Street to the New Britain line late Saturday night as police investigated.

Police are not releasing further details at this time, as the crash remains under investigation. The Plainville Police Department asks anyone with information to contact accident reconstruction investigators Officer Mark Kominske or Officer Jamie Fenn at 860-747-1616.
