Former Keene State College student Ashleigh M. Baudin died Sunday, April 1, in a car accident occurring on Route I-93 in Stoneham, Mass, the Eagle Tribune of North Andover, Mass. reported.
Officials pronounced Baudin dead at the scene after the Volkswagen Beetle she was driving crossed into the breakdown lane and into the rear of a parked 18-wheeler.
The 18-wheeler had its emergency lights flashing at the time of the crash, Massachusetts State Police told the Boston Globe.
