State police said a truck traveling eastbound crossed over the median to the westbound side of the highway and caused two other vehicles to crash around 7:15 p.m.

The driver of one of the vehicles involved was taken to Hartford Hospital, where state police said she died of her injuries. Authorities have identified her as 20-year-old Nia Justice Mcdougald, of Windsor.

Multiple other people were taken to the hospital to be treated for serious injuries, state police said.

The State Police C.A.R.S. Unit responded to the scene to help with the investigation into the crash.
