A state Department of Consumer Protection spokeswoman said Tuesday that the state Liquor Control Commission's investigation into the Good News Cafe in Woodbury opened after the agency received information regarding the serving of alcohol to 67-year-old Katherine Berman.

The Cheshire woman was killed May 9 when her vehicle hit the rear of a driver's SUV and both veered off the road in Woodbury. The other driver, 87-year-old Edward Bertulis, was also killed.

Officials say Berman died from blunt force trauma and drowning. The death was ruled an accident.

The restaurant hasn't responded to a request for comment.
