A woman riding in the backseat of a car was killed when another vehicle crashed into the back of the car she was riding in on a highway in Marlborough, Massachusetts.
The 19-year-old woman from Brimfield, whose identity is being withheld at this time, was pronounced dead at UMass-Lakeside Hospital.
The crash happened around 10 a.m. Thursday on Interstate 290, east of Exit 25.
A preliminary investigation shows a 2010 Dodge Caliber was traveling eastbound on I-290, and when it slowed in the left lane for traffic, a 2000 Jeep Cherokee crashed into the back of it.
All four people in the Dodge, including the woman who died, were taken to UMass-Lakeside Hospital. There is no update on the conditions of the other three.
The driver of the Jeep, a 25-year-old man from West Boylston, was also transported to UMass-Lakeside Hospital with unknown injuries.
An investigation into the crash will determine if charges will be sought.
