HEBRON, Conn. (WTNH) — A woman from Hebron has died after a one-car accident on Tuesday.
According to police, 75-year-old Ruthanne Margaret Hadley of Hebron was driving north on East Street when a tree limb fell in front of her vehicle. The tree limb hit Hadley’s vehicle and subsequently, Hadley, too.
Police believe Hadley then lost control of her vehicle and went off the right side of the road into a grassy area where she struck a sign. She continued driving until she struck a group of trees and came to a stop.
Hadley was pronounced dead at the scene, officials say.
Route 85 was closed for a while on Tuesday night while police investigated the accident, but it has since reopened.
