A woman has been killed in a serious early morning crash.

According to Massachusetts State Police, at approximately 1:00 a.m. a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe was traveling east on Route 6 approaching exit 78A. For reasons still under investigation, the vehicle crossed the solid yellow fog line on the northern edge of road, driving onto the rumble strip. The operator attempted to turn hard to the right to re-enter the travel lane and the Hyundai rotated and rolled over and then went off the southern edge of the road.

The unbelted operator, a 22-year-old Hyannis woman, was ejected from the Hyundai and suffered fatal injuries. The front passenger, who was belted, was able to remove herself from the Hyundai with minor injuries.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing and is being conducted by Troop D of the Massachusetts State Police with assistance from the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section and the State Police Crime Scene Services Section.
