Parkway Fire Victims Identified

State police have released the identities of two people killed in a car fire on the Merritt Parkway in Fairfield Saturday.

Police say Chantal Osorio of Stratford,  who turned 24 on Friday,  was driving her sister’s Chevrolet Cobalt northbound on Route 15 when the car veered left, then swerved right across both travel lanes,  off the right side of the roadway, struck a tree, spun, struck a second tree and caught fire.  She and the sister, 22-year-old Tiffany Osorio, also of Stratford, both died in the crash and fire.

Police say the identifications are tentative,  pending verification through dental records,  and the case remains under investigation.
