WINCHESTER, Conn. (WTNH) — Two people are dead following a crash Tuesday evening in Winchester.
The crash happened between two vehicles at about 7:30 p.m. in the “rock cuts” area on Route 44, according to the Winchester Police Department.
On Wednesday, police identified the two killed in the crash as 84-year-old William O’Leary of Plymouth and a 16-year-old male from New Hartford. Police are not releasing the name of the teen due to the age and at the request of the family, but have said that he was in the same vehicle as O’Leary.
According to police, a Lexus was traveling east on Route 44 when it passed a box truck and collided into a car being driven by O’Leary.
An 18-year-old in the Lexus sustained serious injuries and is being treated at Hartford Hospital.
The crash remains under investigation.
The roadway has since reopened.
Anyone who saw the crash is asked to call police at (860) 379-2721.
