NEW HAVEN, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) – A Connecticut woman who stopped to help people involved in a car accident has died after falling off a highway bridge.

State police say 34-year-old Lauren Mohr of Wallingford was acting as a good Samaritan at the accident scene on Interstate 91 in New Haven at about 12:30 a.m. Thursday when she fell over a concrete wall and plummeted 40 feet.

She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

It was not immediately clear what Mohr was doing when she fell.

A Quinnipiac University spokesman says Mohr worked as a temporary admissions aide at that school.

None of the five people in the two cars involved in the accident was injured. One of the drivers was issued a misdemeanor summons for tailgating and other violations.
