NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — State Police said a man died in a multi-vehicle crash on I-95 north in New Haven Thursday afternoon.
At about 1:40 p.m., state troopers responded to the crash near Exit 44 in New Haven. According to State Police, four vehicles were involved in the crash.
State Police said two of the vehicles were traveling on I-95 north parallel to the Exit 44 entrance ramp while the other two were traveling on that entrance ramp. State Police said one of the vehicles on the entrance ramp, driven by Robert Procaccini, 76, of Branford, lost control and struck the back of the other car on the ramp.
The car struck was then pushed into the travel lanes, which led one of the vehicles on the highway to collide with it. Procaccini’s car then rotated and swerved across all travel lanes, striking another vehicle and colliding with the median barrier.
State Police said Procaccini was pronounced dead at the scene. One of the operators of the other vehicles was taken to Yale New Haven Hospital for minor injuries.
State Poice is asking that any witnesses to the crash contact Trooper Falstoe at (203) 696-2500 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
