    One day after a chain reaction crash at a gas station in Brockton, Massachusetts, a woman has died, authorities announced Friday.

    Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz said the victim, a 54-year-old woman whose name has not been released, declined medical treatment after the crash Thursday morning. She later went to Brockton Hospital before being transported to Beth Israel Hospital, where she died from her injuries.

    Police responded shortly before 10:30 a.m. Thursday to the intersection of Main Street and Perkins Street, where a GMC Yukon crashed into the victim's car, then continued into the parking lot of Gas Depot. He hit a light pole, and his truck can be seen on camera bumping and shaking a gas pump before hitting another car stopped at the gas station.

    The Yukon's driver, who has not been publicly identified, was cited for a traffic violation.
