A Quincy woman was killed in a single-vehicle crash on Route 3 in Hingham, Massachusetts, early Wednesday morning.
Massachusetts State Police said they responded to reports of a crash on Route 3 northbound, near Exit 15, at 1:10 a.m. Upon arrival, they found a 2003 Volkswagen Jetta that had left the roadway, struck a guardrail and rolled over into the woods.
The driver and only occupant of the vehicle, 24-year-old Brittany Hayden, had been ejected fro the vehicle. She was taken by ambulance to South Shore Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
The right travel lane was closed during the incident and for reconstruction, but reopened around 5:40 a.m.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
