    A woman who caused a fatal three-vehicle crash in Brockton, Massachusetts, on Tuesday afternoon will be facing charges.

    The crash, involving a dump truck, occurred on Quincy Street.

    Brockton Mayor Bill Carpenter said an Audi rear-ended an SUV which then crashed into the front of a dump truck causing the truck to roll over, almost hitting a house.

    "It would appear you have two vehicles going in one direction, the dump truck going in another direction," said Carpenter. "The driver of the truck, there was nothing he could do, the car went right into his path, right in front of him."

    According to Carpenter, the driver of the SUV was killed in the crash. Several others were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

    The Plymouth County District Attorney's office said the driver of the Audi, who has not been identified, started the chain-reaction crash.

    A neighbor said the driver got out of the car and had wandered up the street where police finally caught up with her and escorted her back to the scene.

    According to the district attorney, police had been pursuing the driver of the Audi earlier in the day for reasons not immediately known.

    The identity of the woman killed has not yet been released.

    The driver of the Audi is facing charges of motor vehicle homicide and leaving the scene after a fatal motor vehicle crash. She is expected to be arraigned on Wednesday.
