    Woman Killed, Home Damaged in Crash

    A 23-year-old Waterbury woman died after her car went off the road and struck a tree in Middlefield late Thursday night, sending car parts into a nearby home, according to police.

    Police said Asia Dickerson was driving southbound on Baileyville Road/Route 147 in Middlefield when she apparently lost control of the car while traveling through a curve near Lakeview Place.

    The car veered off the road and onto the shoulder, then struck a tree in the front yard of the property at 159 Baileyville Road, according to police. 

    Car parts came loose upon impact and hit the house, causing damage to a window and items inside the home, police said.

    Dickerson was airlifted to Hartford Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

    Police are investigating to determine the cause of the crash.
