WALLINGFORD, CT (WFSB) - A woman was killed in a two-vehicle crash that happened on Interstate 91 in Wallingford on Thursday morning.

State police identified the woman as 39-year-old Sharoya Joan Hall of New York, NY.

A portion of I-91 north was closed for the investigation and cleanup.

According to the Department of Transportation, the two-vehicle crash was reported between exits 14 and 15.

The DOT said the crash happened just before 8:30 a.m.

Troopers said Hall was driving in the left lane on I-91 south a half a mile south of exit 15 when for some reason she left the roadway into the grass median. She then crossed into the left lane of I-91 northbound and collided head-on with another vehicle.

The driver of the first vehicle suffered minor injuries.

Both vehicles needed to be towed from the scene.
