A North Haven man was killed, a Meriden woman in critical condition in an accident that happened just after 10 p.m. last night on I-91 Southbound one-tenth of a mile north of exit 10.
David Cooley, 24, of North Haven, was driving when he lost control of the 2002 Chevy Cavalier, veered off the right shoulder and struck a tree. He and passenger Paige Camera, 24, of Meriden, were taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital where Cooley was pronounced dead and Camera is listed in critical condition, on life support.
The vehicle was registered to Camera. The fatality is the third on state roads during state police’s stepped up efforts during the Thanksgiving Weekend.
