KILLINGLY, Conn. (AP) - Police say a Connecticut woman was killed when she lost control of her vehicle while racing another car.

The Hartford Courant reports (https://cour.at/2cz4Gtr) the crash happened around 2:30 p.m. Friday on Interstate 395 in Killingly.

Witnesses told police the two cars were speeding in adjacent lanes and appeared to be racing. Twenty-year-old Shauna Julian-Trombley, of North Grosvenordale, lost control of her vehicle when the other car abruptly entered her lane. The car struck a wire rope guardrail, entered the median and went up an embankment.

The vehicle rolled over, and Julian-Trombley was ejected. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

A passenger, 17-year-old Kerissa Marquis, of Thompson, was treated for minor injuries.

The second car fled the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to contact state police.
