A 20-year-old woman was killed in a crash after a car turned in front of the motorcycle she was a passenger on.
Miranda Elienai, of Bridgeport, was killed around 7 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of Park Avenue and Olive Street, said Av Harris, Bridgeport Police Department spokesman.
According to Harris, Danillo Andrade, 31, the motorcycle operator, and Elienai, were traveling south on Park Avenue when he saw a white Dodge Intrepid slowly making a left turn from Olive Street onto Park Avenue, said Harris.
"The black 2007 Suzuki GSX R 600 operator reduced speed, braking several times before slamming into the Dodge Intrepid's driver's rear door," Harris said. "Both motorcycle occupants were ejected. A lone insecurely strapped motorcycle helmet lay in the shoulder."
Both Elienai and Andrade were transported to Saint Vincent's Medical Center, where Elieani died from severe head trauma, he added.
Andrade suffered a bilateral brain bleed and a fractured right wrist, Harris said.
Tremaine D. Wilson, of New Haven, was driving the Dodge Intrepid.
The investigation is continuing and no arrests have been made.
