One person was killed after a car slammed into a tree on the Wilbur Cross Parkway on Monday morning, according to Connecticut State Police.
The crash occurred at about 7 a.m. on northbound Route 15 near Exit 59 in the Woodbridge/New Haven area, said State Trooper Kelly Grant.
The crash involved only one vehicle, and the victim was extricated from the wreckage, Grant said.
State police did not release any other details of the crash or the victim.
Delays were still reported back to Route 34 two hours after the crash occurred, according to the state Department of Transportation.
There were periodic lane closures to extricate the victim, clear the accident scene and compete the investigation, she said.
