New Milford Police have made a preliminary conclusion of what led to a fatal accident on Route 7 between a car and a dump truck.  The accident investigation team is still looking into the crash, but says it appears the driver of the car was headed south, and crossed into the northbound lane.  24-year old Christina Walters of Kent collided with the dump truck, which went down an embankment and became partially submerged in the Housatonic River.  The truck driver was able to extricate himself from the vehicle and wade to shore.  He sustained minor injuries.  Walters was pronounced dead at the scene.  Her death was ruled accidental.  Toxicology reports have not yet been returned from the state medical examiner’s office.
