Police are investigating a fatal head-on crash on a busy Connecticut roadway.

It happened around 3:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18 in Litchfield County on Route 202 in New Hartford.

A 2016 Ryder Truck was traveling eastbound and a 2004 Honda Odyssey EX was traveling westbound when, for an unknown reason, the Odyssey crossed the double-yellow line in the roadway and struck the Ryder Truck head-on, Connecticut State Police said. 

The Odyssey driver succumbed to her injuries, according to police. She's been identified as Litchfield County resident Gena Marie, age 60, of Torrington.

The driver of the Ryder Truck, a 53-year-old Hartford man, was transported by ambulance to St. Francis Hospital in Hartford with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene.
