Meriden Police say a local woman was killed early Saturday morning in a traffic crash.

Police say Raquel Pacheco, 49, the woman was driving a vehicle westbound on Columbia Street near Interstate 691, that hit a fence, went partially airborne, and slammed into the base of a bridge around 2 a.m.

Investigators believe speed may have been a factor in the crash, which shut down the on-ramp to I-691 eastbound for hours early Saturday.
