POMFRET, N.Y. (AP) - State police say a 49-year-old woman killed in a three-vehicle crash on a snow-covered western New York road was visiting from Australia.

Troopers say Carolanne Boulionis of Melbourne, Australia was driving a pickup truck too fast for the weather conditions on Route 60 Monday afternoon when she lost control and crossed into oncoming traffic in the Chautauqua (shuh-TAW’-kwuh) County town of Pomfret, 35 miles southwest of Buffalo.

Police say her pickup hit a truck, while a third vehicle also sustained damage in the collision.

Boulionis was pronounced dead at a hospital. Troopers say she had been in the U.S. for the past month and had been staying in Jamestown.

The truck driver was treated for chest pain. The other driver wasn’t injured.
