A Colby-Sawyer College student has died after crashing into a median on Interstate 89 in New Hampshire Monday night.

Melissa Molin, 21, of West Hartford, Connecticut, was the only occupant when the SUV she was driving crashed into a median in Sutton, according to state police. Emergency personnel were able to remove Molin from the vehicle, but she later died from her injuries at Concord Hospital, police said.
