Another fatal accident in Shelton

State police are investigating a fatal accident this morning on Route 8 southbound near exit 12 in Shelton. One person, from Bridgeport, died in the single-car accident. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
The accident wasn’t witnessed, so it’s not sure what time it happened. A person driving by the scene sometime before 9 a.m. reported the accident to police.
The grey Subaru has just been removed from the scene and state police from Troop I in Bethany are apparently on their way to notify the deceased’s next of kin.
Today’s accident didn’t happen too far from a double fatal accident Friday night off Route 8 at exit 13 that killed two teenagers, one from Shelton, the other from Stratford.
Friends have been at that accident scene setting up a memorial to the two who died.
We will post more details on both accidents as they become available.
