NEWINGTON — A Greenland woman died after driving a car into a tree early Friday morning, according to local first responders.

Reta Haskins, 36, was identified as the driver and only occupant of the sedan that crashed into the woods about 4 a.m. near the intersection of McIntyre and Little Bay roads, officials said.

In a Friday Facebook post, Newington Fire Chief Darin Sabine expressed his gratitude to those who tried to save Haskins. “I would like to thank Newington police and the firefighters on duty for doing all they could to change the outcome of this call. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family,” he said. The crash is under investigation.
