Palmer woman dies in collision with SUV
A Palmer woman is dead after the car she was driving crashed into an SUV carrying two young Fiskdale men in Sturbridge, police said Sunday. Deborah Parker, 58, was traveling alone in the southbound lane on Brookfield Road near North Drive late Saturday night when the 2012 Ford Fusion she was driving crossed the center lane marker and struck a 2002 Chevrolet K1500 traveling north. Ryan Fabrycki, 22, was driving in the SUV with his brother, Conor, 21, according to Sturbridge Police Sergeant Kevin R. Mercier. The Sturbridge Fire Department used the Jaws of Life to free Parker from her car, and she was taken to Harrington Hospital in Southbridge, where she was pronounced dead. Police said their preliminary investigation indicated that Parker was not wearing a seat belt. The two brothers, who were wearing seatbelts, were treated at the scene. Mercier did not say whether speed or alcohol were factors in the crash.
