    Woman, Dog Killed in Multi-Vehicle Crash on Highway in Sharon

    A woman and her dog were killed Sunday in a multi-vehicle crash in Sharon, Massachusetts.

    State Police responded around 2:23 p.m. to reports of an accident on Interstate 95 northbound, north of Exit 8 in Sharon, at the 17 mile-marker.

    A preliminary investigation shows that a 73-year-old Rockport woman was driving a Jaguar sedan and a 79-year-old Brewster woman was driving a Volkswagen Passat. Both were traveling on I-95 north when they collided, causing the Jaguar driver to lose control and spin across the left two lanes, exiting the highway.

    The Jaguar went down an embankment and struck a tree, ejecting the driver and her dog. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
