Police seek reason for driver's swerve in fatal crash
By Benjamin Paulin, Globe Correspondent
Police are investigating a two-vehicle crash in which one person was killed Friday afternoon on Route 195 East in Dartmouth.
Michelle D. Calverley, 26, of East Falmouth, swerved and struck a GMC truck that was parked in the breakdown lane at 1:47 p.m., State Police said.
Calverley, who was driving a 2001 Toyota Sienna, was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford with serious injuries and was later pronounced dead.
The driver of the parked truck, Louis P. Sikorsky, 54, of Westport, was uninjured.
The reason Calverley’s vehicle swerved is still under investigation, said Lieutenant Eric Anderson, a State Police spokesman. “It appeared that she was avoiding something,” he said.
There were no other passengers in either vehicle, Anderson said.
