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 the crash happened around 2:30 p.m. Friday on Interstate 395 in Killingly.

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.
