A Milford woman and victim of a crash on Camp Street last Sunday has died from her injuries, according to Milford Police. 

Alexandra Humiston, 26, of Milford was involved in a single car crash on Camp Street last Sunday, Feb. 2. After striking a utility pole on the road, she became trapped in her vehicle, prompting rescue crews to use the Jaws of Life to remove her from the car. 

She was transported to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, and the medical examiner's office told police she died on the evening of Wednesday, Feb. 5, according to Milford Police Chief Thomas J. O’Loughlin. A child believed to be Humiston's daughter was also in the vehicle at the time of the accident, and was also transported to the hospital but was later released.

O'Loughlin said Sunday's accident is still under investigation, but it's not currently clear what caused the accident. 

"They're still doing reconstruction," he said. "Preliminarily, the reconstruction says that it happened in an instant."

Friends have set up a GoFundMe.com account to help Humiston's family with medical expenses and support. The page has already raised more than $17,600.

"This page has been set up to support the Humiston family," wrote Mike Kowal, who created the page on Wednesday. "We love and cherish the relationships that we have with them, and this is our chance to give back. Please, open your hearts to help alleviate the expensive medical bills that have come along with this terrible tragedy. Please continue to pray for Alexandra, Bryanna, and the entire Humiston family during this difficult time. Thank you."

Friends and family also weighed in with support on Facebook this week upon hearing of the news of the accident.

Why isn't there anything in the Milford Daily News about this woman's death?

Mdn reported this days ago actually.

There is nothing on MDN because it contains false information. (this article and the one that was taken down off of mdn)
