GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A woman has died after a crash on Bernardston Road in Greenfield Thursday afternoon.

According to Northwestern District Attorney’s Office spokesperson Laurie Loisel, 59-year-old Brenda Perrea of Northfield died after a single-car crash on Bernardston Road (Route 5) around 3:15 p.m.

Perrea’s car crashed into a cement abutment under the Route 91 overpass on Bernardston Road. Police were called to the crash by a passerby who called 911 at 3:21 p.m.

Loisel said it is possible Perrea suffered a medical incident before the crash but the cause of death has not yet been determined by the medical examiner.

Perrea was taken by ambulance to Baystate Franklin Medical Center where she later died.

Greenfield Police and Massachusetts State Police are investigating the crash.
