CHESHIRE, Conn. (WTNH)– A Meriden man was killed during a crash in Cheshire on Sunday morning.

Police said just after 5 a.m., officers responded to the area of Diamond Hill Road and South Meriden Road for the report of a one-car crash.

Cheshire police said the driver, identified as 36-year-old Jeremy Rodriquez, died from his injuries before police arrived on the scene.

According to police, it appears Rodriguez was traveling at a high rate of speed and failed to make a curve in the roadway. That’s when the car traveled off the roadway and struck several trees.

Cheshire Police Traffic Division and Naugatuck Valley Collision Investigation Team are investigating the crash. Officials say the road will remain closed for several hours as police investigate.

No additional information was available at this time.
