Woman Charged With DUI After Fatal Crash



    A Newington woman was arrested and charged with driving under the influence after causing a fatal crash in Windsor Locks, according to state police.

    Katell Gunning, 34, was driving a Volkswagen Tigua on Interstate 91 North in Windsor prior to exit 44 when she rear ended a Ford F350 driven by Kevin Dutra, 46, of Colchester, just before 2 p.m. Saturday, state police said.

    The crash is under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call Trooper Gustafson with the Connecticut State Police Troop H at 860-534-1000.
