WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (WTNH)– A Newington woman was arrested on DUI charges after a crash on I-91 in Windsor Locks left one man dead Saturday afternoon.
Police say at around 2 p.m., a Volkswagen Tiguan and a Ford F350sup truck were traveling north on I-91, prior to exit 44, when the truck was rear ended by the Volkswagen. This caused the truck to lose control and swerve across the roadway, where it struck a metal guardrail and rolled over.
The driver of that truck, identified as 46-year-old Kevin Dutra, of Colchester, died from his injuries sustained in the crash.
The driver of the Volkswagen, identified as 34-year-old Katell Gunning, evaded the scene before being found off of exit 44 in East Windsor. Gunning was then arrested for operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, as well as other motor vehicle charges. Police say additional charges are also pending.
Gunning is currently being held on $150,000 bond and the crash remains under investigation. Police ask anyone who may have witnessed the crash to call state police at 860-534-1000.
I-91 was closed for several hours Saturday for the investigation but has since been reopened.
