A 57-year-old woman was killed late Saturday night in a head-on crash involving a car and an SUV on the Merritt Parkway.

The crash occurred around 11:30 p.m. near Exit 67 in Meriden when 21-year-old David Perez of Bridgeport, was traveling southbound in a 2005 Honda Civic near the Miller Avenue DOT exit when he drove off the left side of the roadway, and struck a curb.

The car then became airborne, launched over the metal-beam guardrail median, and into the northbound flow of traffic, where it hit a  2013 Chevrolet Equinox head on, causing both vehicles to be disabled in the travel lane.

Sally Mosher of Littleton, New Hampshire was pronounced dead at the scene. She was a passenger in the Equinox driven by her husband, 48-year-old Scott Mosher, also of Littleton, New Hampshire.

Scott Mosher and two other passengers, 47-year-old Dax Macafee and 45-year-old Candy Macafee of Campton, New Hampshire, suffered injuries and were transported to Hartford Hospital.

Mosher was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, while the three others aboard the car were, state police said.

Perez , who was extricated from the Civic, also was injured and was transported to Hartford Hospital.

The crash remains under investigation.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call Trooper First Class John O'Connor at 203-393-4222, extension 3026.
