Crash on Route 9 kills Shrewsbury woman

WESTBOROUGH/SHREWSBURY

Westborough police are investigating the death of a 22-year-old Shrewsbury woman whose car crashed on Route 9 Sunday morning, officials said.

Meredith A. Marzilli of Shrewsbury was pinned under the car in the 10 a.m. crash. Firefighters extricated her and took her to UMass-Memorial Mecial Center in Worcester, where she died.

Her father, Anthony Marzilli, 57, remains hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Witnesses saw the 2004 Chevy Malibu they were in lose control in the eastbound lane of Route 9 before striking a guard rail and flipping near the University of Phoenix building on Fryberg Parkway.

Westborough Police Chief Alan R. Gordon said investigators are heading to the hospital this afternoon to interview the elder Marzilli about what happened.
