Manhole cover crashes into SUV's windshield, killing driver

A dislodged manhole cover weighing more than 200 pounds went airborne and crashed through an SUV's windshield on a major highway, killing an art teacher as she drove to work during the Friday morning commute, authorities said.

Police didn't confirm the victim's name Friday, but Milton Public School district identified her as Caitlin Clavette, an art teacher at Glover Elementary School in the Boston suburb.

"Ms. Clavette was a talented and special educator who has touched the lives of many students and families over the past four years in the Milton Public Schools," the district said in a statement. "The entire Milton community extends its thoughts and prayers to Caitlin's family and friends."
