Pomfret, NY (February 25, 2020) – An 8-year-old girl was killed in a multi-car accident on Monday, February 25th in the town of Pomfret.

According to police reports, a red sedan driving northbound along Route 60 was attempting to make a lefthand turn into a parking lot when it was rear-ended by a Chrysler. 

The force of the impact propelled the sedan directly into the path of an oncoming 18-wheeler.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
