MIDDLEBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Records show a wrong-way driver who caused a crash that killed her and four college students in Massachusetts had been cited for speeding five times.

The Enterprise reports that 31-year-old Valantein Burson’s driving record shows she was cited for speeding in Warren, Sturbridge, Stoughton, Canton and Westport. Her last speeding citation was issued in October 2015.

The Fall River woman died in the Monday crash that also killed 19-year-old Jordan Galvin-Jutras, 20-year-old Kraig Diggs, 19-year-old Jordan Fisher and 18-year-old Cory Licata.

The men were in a northbound vehicle that burst into flames after being struck by a car going south in the northbound lanes of Interstate 495 in Middleborough. Diggs was driving.

The crash remains under investigation.
