Dec. 8—HAVERHILL — The victim of a crash that happened early Sunday evening at the intersection of Smiley Avenue and Main Street, has been identified as Kathleen Roy, 62, of Haverhill.

Carrie Kimball, spokesperson for Essex County District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett, said Roy was driving a 2014 Honda CRV on Smiley Avenue and was turning left onto Main Street just before 6 p.m. when she collided with a 2020 Chrysler Town and Country minivan.

Kimball said Roy was initially transported to Merrimack Valley Hospital in Haverhill then airlifted to Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington, where she was pronounced dead.

The driver of the minivan, a 27-year-old Haverhill man and a passenger, were taken to area hospitals for non-life threatening injuries, she said.

According to Police Deputy Chief Stephen Doherty, no arrests had been made or citations issued as of Wednesday.

He said firefighters found Roy trapped inside her vehicle. All crews worked to extricate the woman, who was treated at the scene by Haverhill firefighters and Trinity EMS before being transported to the hospital, he said.
