Police said on Saturday that the crash occurred Friday afternoon at the intersection of Chase Parkway and Rt. 64. They say Pamela Winston was driving her car when a tractor-trailer that was attempting to turn left onto Chase Parkway slammed into the driver side of her vehicle.
Winston was taken to Waterbury Hospital where physicians pronounced her dead a short time later.
Police identified the driver of the tractor-trailer as 51-year-old Michael Ploch of Oxford. He was not injured.
Investigators are still looking into the crash and no charges have been filed yet.
