2 Killed In Separate Connecticut Crashes

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — State police in Connecticut are investigating two fatal accidents that happened just after the start of the holiday weekend.

Police said the first crash occurred on Interstate 95 near exit 88 in Groton just before 1:30 a.m. on Saturday.

They said a car driven by 27-year-old David Reidy of Newport, R.I., hit a guard rail and landed on its roof in a crash that threw 26-year-old Laura Kavazanjian of Setauket, N.Y., from the vehicle. Police said Kavazanjian was killed, while Reidy was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The second crash came on Route 85 in Bolton just after 5:30 a.m.

Police said one person was killed. They did not immediately release the victim’s identity.
