The name of a woman who died after a turbulence event forced a plane to land at Bradley International Airport has been released by authorities. 

Maryland resident Dana Hyde, age 55, of the city of Cabin John in Montgomery County, suffered fatal injuries from the flight, which landed at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks on Friday, March 3, according to Connecticut State Police. 

Troopers responded to the Hartford County airport around 3:50 p.m. on Friday to assist with the medical emergency. Hyde was then taken by ambulance to Saint Francis Medical Center in Hartford, where she succumbed to her injuries. 

The Connecticut Office of the Chief Medical Examiner then assumed custody of Hyde's body, police said.

The National Transportation Safety Board is now investigating the fatal flight, which involved a Bombardier Challenger 300 airplane. 

Federal officials said that investigators are looking into a "trim issue" that happened before the turbulence event. More information will be known once investigators analyze data from the flight data recorder, cockpit voice recorder, and weather data, officials added. 

A preliminary report regarding the flight is expected to be released in two to three weeks. 

In addition to the NTSB, officials from the Federal Bureau of Investigation are also looking into the incident.
