Four people were reported dead after a driver traveling the wrong way slammed into a vehicle carrying three people on I-95 early Sunday, Connecticut.
The state police said due to the wrong-way crash incident, the highway was closed for hours after the 2:30 a.m. crash near Guilford, Conn., with drivers diverted near exit 60 from 3 a.m. until at least 9 a.m.
Based on the initial police investigation, a Nissan Altima driven by Luis Garduno-Cidals, 22, of Westbrook, was heading northbound in the left lane of I-95 when it moved into the southbound lane.
In its path was a Chevrolet Coronado, going southbound in the same lane.
Johnny Bookhardt, 76, was driving the Chevy.
In the car with him was 68-year-old Caroline Bookhardt in the front passenger seat and 66-year-old Patricia Greene-Kessler, behind the driver on the left side of the vehicle.
All three were Norwalk residents.
Sources said Garduno Cidals slammed head-on into them, and all four were killed.
A deeper investigation of the incident is now underway.
