SHARON, MASS. (WHDH) - An elderly woman and her dog were killed in a two-vehicle crash on I-95 in Sharon on Sunday afternoon, state police say.

Troopers responding to a reported crash north of Exit 8 determined that a 2003 Jaguar sedan driven by a 73-year-old Rockport woman had collided with a 2017 Volkswagen Passat driven by a 79-year-old Brewster woman, sending the Jaguar off the highway, down an embankment, and into a tree, state police said.

The driver of the Jaguar, whose name was not released, and her dog were both pronounced dead at the scene.
