DANBURY, Conn. (AP) _ Three people have died after a crash involving three vehicles on a Danbury street.

Police say the accident just before noon Tuesday involved two cars and a box truck on South Street.

Edward Kish, 45, of Brookfield, was operating a 2001 Honda Accord going north on South Street and according to witnesses, was slumped over the wheel. He lost control of his vehicle, crossing the double yellow line, and striking a 2007 Buick Lucerne, going in the other direction, driven by Jane Shannon, 78, with passenger William Shannon, 77, both of Bethel.

The impact forced the Buick back and into a box truck operated by Roy Bass, of Middle Island, N.Y. All parties involved were transported to Danbury Hospital. Bass was the only one who survived. He was treated and released.

The collision is under investigation. Police ask any witnesses to contact them at (203) 797-2157 or (203) 797-2156.

No charges have been filed.
