Teen killed in Wednesday crash remembered as ‘sweet and kind’



WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) — An 18-year-old woman who died when the SUV she was driving rolled over is being remembered by her family as “sweet and kind.”

Police on Thursday publicly identified the driver of the vehicle that struck a parked car and rolled in Waterbury on Wednesday night as Coreyann Spruill.

Police say she was ejected from the vehicle. Two passengers, ages 18 and 17, were injured but are expected to survive.

Witnesses say the SUV rolled over several times after striking an unoccupied parked car.

Spruill’s grand-aunt, Annette Spruill, tells the Republican American the victim graduated from Danbury High School last year and moved to Waterbury about six months ago. She worked at a shoe store and wanted to become a nurse.

The crash remains under investigation.
