Citing a preliminary investigation, the DA's office says the 88-year-old Foxboro resident was driving a Toyota Corolla when she crossed the center line, striking a Hyundai Santa Fe.

Perry, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was taken to Sturdy Memorial Hospital where she died.

Officials did not say why they believe Perry veered into oncoming traffic. According to the DA's office, it has not been determined whether or not she suffered a medical emergency prior to the collision.

The driver of the Santa Fe, who was wearing a seatbelt, did not need transported to a local hospital, the DA said. Their name has not been released.
