HARWINTON, Conn (WTNH) — Connecticut State Police responded to a crash in Harwinton that killed a teenage girl standing on the side of the road in front of her home.

Officials said the report came in on Sunday night at 9:19 p.m. Police determined the 14-year-old pedestrian, identified as Kailey Prenoveau, was deceased upon arrival at Hill Rd.

A Dodge Charger was parked, facing north on the southbound side on Route 222, with the driver speaking to the pedestrian from his driver’s side window. The pedestrian was standing in the southbound lane shoulder.

A Pontiac Grand Am was traveling south when it swerved off of the roadway to avoid hitting the Charger. As a result, the Grand Am hit the pedestrian.

The road was closed from Rte 222 at Delay Rd to Route 222 at Hayden Road for several hours and has since reopened.
