SOUTHBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — One person is dead and another is seriously injured following a multi-crash incident on Interstate 84 West in Southbury.

According to troopers, just before 6 p.m. on Thursday, a Nissan Sentra was left in the left lane of I-84 near exit 15 after being involved in a crash.

A report indicates that operators of both cars involved in that crash were standing outside when a Honda Pilot, that was traveling west, veered from the left lane, struck the driver side of the Nissan and then hit 36-year-old Michael Canby. After the initial collision, the Nissan hit 72-year-old Cynthia Geary.

Northrop, of Southbury, was taken to Danbury Hospital for serious injuries.

Canby, of Wolcott, died of his injuries – just eight days after his birthday.

The driver of the Honda was unharmed.

Any investigation is underway. No charges have been filed.
