PD: Speed a factor in fiery Norwalk crash that killed Avon woman

NORWALK — Connecticut State Police said a woman was killed after a fiery three-car crash on Route 15 in Norwalk.

Police said Hongying Tian, 46, from Avon, was speeding down Route 15 south at about 10 p.m. Tuesday.

Troopers say she traveled into the median, through a metal guide rail and struck a large tree. She then went across both lanes of the highway and into the grassy shoulder where her vehicle came to rest on fire. Two other vehicles were hit by flying debris.

Tian was ejected from her vehicle and pronounced dead at the hospital. No one else was hurt.

Police said speed appears to be a factor but are still investigating.

Police ask anyone who may have seen the accident to call them at 203-696-2500.
