EASTHAMPTON — A 67-year-old Chicopee woman died from injuries suffered in a single-car crash on I-91 southbound in Easthampton on Friday afternoon, according to Massachusetts State Police.

State troopers assigned to Northampton barracks responded to the crash at approximately 2 p.m. where they found a Honda Accord stopped in the breakdown lane with damage from striking a stationary object on the side of the highway, according to State Police.

Troopers and good Samaritans at the scene quickly rendered medical aid to the driver of the car until Northampton Fire and Rescue arrived. The driver was transported to the hospital where she died from her injuries, according to State Police. Police said a preliminary investigation reveals the driver may have suffered a medical incident prior to the crash.

The crash remains under investigation by members of the State Police Collision Analysis Reconstruction Section, Crime Scene Services, Hampshire County State Police Detective Unit, and Troop B of the Massachusetts State Police. A State Police spokesman said no further information was available Sunday.
