TRUMBULL, Conn. (WTNH) – A Bridgeport man was killed in a car crash on Route 111 in Trumbull on Monday evening, according to the police.
Just after 4 p.m., police were notified of a serious car crash in the area of Route 111 (Monroe Turnpike) at the intersection of Technology Drive.
According to the police, a Bridgeport man was driving an Infiniti that collided with a Subaru Crosstrek, operated by a Trumbull woman on Monroe Turnpike.
Upon arrival at the scene, officers found a car that was on fire and that both cars involved in the crash were heavily damaged.
Officials said first responders were unable to access the burning car to determine if there were any occupants inside because it was entangled with an electrical utility poll.
Medical aid was rendered to the sole occupant of the Subaru Crosstrek and she was later transported to Bridgeport Hospital by Trumbull EMS, where she was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
The Long Hill and Trumbull Center Fire Departments extinguished the fire and secured the scene, officials said.
The deceased victim was identified as 22-year-old Xavier Miller of Powell Terrace in Bridgeport.
Police learned the Infiniti had traveled southernly on Monroe Turnpike before it collided with the Subaru where both cars came to rest near Technology Drive. Police said the accident spanned the intersection of Route 111.
The Trumbull and Monroe Police Department’s Traffic Divisions are currently investigating the incident.
At approximately 9:30 p.m. the area of Monroe Turnpike between Route 25 and the Monroe Town line has been partially re-opened and is expected to clear by morning.
