WARREN, Massachusetts — State police have released the names of the victims of a two-vehicle crash on the Massachusetts Turnpike that backed up traffic in both directions for miles.

Police say 22-year-old Meaghan Noel, of Taunton, was driving east in Warren at about 8:40 a.m. Monday when her SUV went out of control, crossed the median and collided with a westbound tractor-trailer.

Noel was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the tractor-trailer, 52-year-old Sandra Debonis of Warren, Rhode Island, was trapped in the vehicle's cab. After being extricated by firefighters, she was flown to a Worcester hospital.

What caused Noel to swerve is under investigation.

All lanes in both directions were closed for more than an hour after the crash.
