A University of Massachusetts student died Thursday evening in a fatal crash in Deerfield, according to a release from Mary Carey, spokesperson for the Northwestern District Attorney’s Office.

Sarah Bresnahan, a 19-year-old freshman from Easton, Massachusetts was the sole occupant of the vehicle that crashed into a tree.

“I can confirm that Sarah Bresnahan, who passed away in a car accident in South Deerfield, was a first-year UMass student and was a major in the accounting program in Isenberg,” said Executive Director of Strategic Communications and Special Assistant to the Vice Chancellor
Ed Blaguszewski.

The crash occurred in front of 50 Sugarloaf St. in Deerfield at 5:44 p.m., according to the Daily Hampshire Gazette.

Deerfield Police Department, Massachusetts State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section and Massachusetts State Police detectives assigned to the Northwestern District Attorney’s Office are investigating the crash, according to the release.

“We as a University certainly mourn her loss and we extend our heartfelt sympathies to her family and friends,” said Blaguszewski.
