Deadly crash blocks highway

There has been a fatal car accident on Route 67 in Southbury that has had the highway blocked for several hours.

According to the state Department of Transportation, the two-car collision was reported around 2:15 p.m. Thursday. The road remains closed at Route 188 as emergency crews work the scene and investigate.

The department says the road could be closed for at least another hour.

Tweets from the area show the accident involved a car and a small box truck.

Avoid the area if you can. If you’re going to be on  I-84 eastbound and you need to get to Seymour Road or Oxford Road, get off at Exit 16 instead and turn left onto Route 188.

More details will be posted here as they’re available.
