Newington Woman Killed In I-91 Accident
State police say a Newington woman was killed when she was thrown from a pickup truck on Interstate 91 in Rocky Hill Monday night.
Police say 23-year-old Jessica Zderkiewicz was a passenger in the truck driven by 28-year-old Richard Lewicki of Kensington, headed southbound between exits 24 and 23 just before 9:30 p.m. when the vehicle veered from the left lane into a Jeep, also headed southbound, in the center lane. Police say the truck apparently rolled over several times before coming to rest off the highway.
Lewicki was taken to Hartford Hospital for treatment. The driver of the other vehicle, 28-year-old Kevin Allen of East Haven, was not injured. The accident closed the highway southbound for a time.
