MILFORD - State police are investigating an accident on I-91 that killed a woman from Milford.

Morissa Barrette, 20, was riding in an SUV Saturday when the driver lost control, crossed two lanes and hit a guardrail near exit 11 in North Haven.

Krysta Kubik, a friend of Barrette's who was in the car with her, said they were on their way home from a concert the previous night in Hartford when a tire blew out and the driver lost control.

Kubik says she was able to climb out of the sunroof to see if everyone was OK, but Barrette was not moving.

Barrette's parents say she had just registered to take classes to become a medical assistant.

Four other people in the vehicle, including the driver, were taken to the hospital, but are expected to be OK. All but one of the other people have been released.
