Officials: Woman Killed In Halifax Crash Was Driving 100+ MPH

HALIFAX (CBS) – A 26-year-old woman was killed in a crash Saturday in Halifax.

Fire officials told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 that the victim was driving at least 100 miles per hour down South Street around 12:20 a.m. when her SUV skidded and slammed into a tree.

The Nissan SUV was split in half by the impact, with a two-foot diameter tree trunk winding up in the center of the vehicle,

The vehicle burst into flames on impact.

According to Fire Chief William Carrico, nearby residents heard the crash, rushed out, and pulled the woman from the burning car before emergency responders arrived.

The victim was rushed to Brockton Hospital, but did not survive. No one else was in the vehicle when it crashed.

Chief Carrico says he has had concerns about the road, which was recently paved.

“As soon as they paved it, I knew we were going to be getting some calls down there because it’s a nice straightaway and you can really pick up some speed on that road down there,” he said. “It’s like a race track now.”

The victim has not yet been identified.
