NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut woman who stopped to help people involved in a car accident has died after falling off a highway bridge.

State police say 34-year-old Lauren Mohr, of Wallingford, was acting as a good Samaritan at the accident scene on Interstate 91 in New Haven at about 12:30 a.m. Thursday when she fell over a concrete wall and plummeted 40 feet. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Troopers say she may have been trying to avoid an oncoming car when she fell. Her death remains under investigation.

A Quinnipiac University spokesman says Mohr was a temporary admissions aide at that school.

None of the five people in the two cars involved in the accident was injured. One of the drivers was cited for tailgating and other violations.
