ATTLEBORO (CBS) — One woman was killed and another seriously injured Saturday morning when the SUV they were in was hit by a car on I95 in Attleboro.

The crash happened at about 8:15 a.m. on the southbound side of I95 near exit 2.

State police say a woman driving a Toyota Camry in the right travel lane rear ended a Ford Explorer. The Explorer lost control and rolled. The driver, 57-year-old Claudette J. Kumor from Northborough, was ejected, and her 34-year-old passenger, Carolyn Bibbo, from Woonsocket, R.I. was trapped.

The vehicles landed in the left and middle lanes of the highway.

Kumor died at the scene. Bibbo was freed and taken to Study Memorial Hospital. The driver of the Camry was not injured.

State police are investigating speed as a possible factor in the crash and will determine whether criminal charges will be filed.

The left and middle lanes of the highway were closed until about 11 a.m.

    Sorry for the correction, but this story happened in Attleboro, not Foxboro. Exit 2 on I-95 is in Attleboro. Here is our Sun Chronicle Story for this:

    Hopefully this gets corrected.

    We see it over and over;”The Victim was ejected”.Please,Wear your seatbelt.

    I absolutely agree with you. I do have to play devil’s advocate for a second, though. There have been problems with the locking mechanism on pre-2006 Ford seat belts during rollovers. I do suspect she was unbelted, but I need to throw that out there.

    On our way to Foxwoods Saturday morning, we went by this accident shortly after they freed the passenger. Even with seatbelts, it looked to me as if anyone would have been lucky to survive the rollover. The survivor is a very lucky person indeed!

    I knew the woman who was killed. Claudette had the most wonderful laugh, and used it often. She was a warm, loving friend, mother and grandmother, and the world was better with her in it. My thoughts are with her family.
