READING, MASS. (WHDH) - One person was killed Thursday morning in an OUI crash involving multiple vehicles and a motorcyclist on Interstate 95 in Reading.

Massachusetts State Police responded around 10 a.m. to the crash on the northbound side of the highway near exit 37.

Police say Dewolfe fled the scene, causing additional crashes. She was later taken into custody by Wakefield police and state police near exit 42.
