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

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