(CNN) — A woman died after a vehicle struck her in a Massachusetts town late Monday and dragged her for more than three miles, police said.

Moses Aloque, 22, allegedly ran into her and another pedestrian in the town of Wrentham around 10 p.m., the district attorney’s office said in a statement.

The collision triggered 911 calls from witnesses.

The crash left the other victim with minor injuries at the site of the collision, Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey told CNN affiliate WCVB, but the lifeless body of the woman, who was in her 50s, was found 3.2 miles up the road in the town of Foxborough.

Aloque will be arraigned early Tuesday on charges of fleeing the scene of a fatal accident. He may have been driving a pickup truck, Morrissey said, and may have had passengers on board.

Investigators are searching the road for pieces of the woman’s clothing and other evidence.
