State police said Perez,  who had moved to Southport seven months ago from Westport, was headed south on the exit 15 on-ramp in a 2009 Subaru when she veered left for an unknown reason, crossing the right and center lanes, directly into the path of a 2004 Freightliner tractor-trailer, causing a collision.

Perez was pronounced dead at the scene of the 1:25 a.m. accident. The Subaru was totaled and the truck suffered heavy damage, state police said.

Her death followed that of Charles M.Rochlin, 24, a 2003 Staples grad, who was killed in a crash on Greens Farms Road in Westport on Dec. 27. (See WestportNow Dec. 28, 2009)
