State Police have released the names of the two women involved in a fatal accident in Carmel last Friday.

The BDN is reporting that 41-year-old Sharon Cummings of Newport was killed in the crash. Cummings was a passenger in the car driven by 46-year-old Mary Knight of St. Albans. Knight was injured in the crash.

Police said Knight's vehicle left the northbound lane of Interstate 95 just after 10 a.m. Friday and drove into some trees. State Police suspect a mechanical failure of some kind caused the driver to lose control.
