    A Massachusetts woman was arrested Thursday after police say she ran away from the scene of a crash that killed two people in Easton.

    Police said 33-year-old Sheri Vazauez of Easton was speeding on Route 138 when she crashed into another vehicle that was turning onto Purchase Street around 6:15 p.m.

    A 79-year-old man and a 77-year-old woman in the second vehicle both died from their injuries, according to the Bristol County District Attorney's Office.

    Police said Vazquez got out of her Dodge Journey and ran away. A short time later, she was arrested in West Bridgewater.
