A Fall River woman died yesterday when her car veered off Route 24 northbound into the woods in Fall River, causing the engine to catch fire and trapping her inside, State Police said. State Police used the Jaws of Life to extract Alexandra Medeiros, 20, from her 2002 Nissan Altima and transported her to Charlton Memorial Hospital in Fall River, where she was pronounced dead, according to the statement. Excessive speed is being investigated as a possible factor in the crash, which occurred at about noon, State Police said.
