Four Injured When Car Crashes Into Fairfield Cumberland

FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut authorities say an out-of-control control car exiting Interstate 95 southbound in Fairfield crashed into a convenience store, injuring four people and damaging the building and five other vehicles.

Fairfield police say the car was going too fast on the exit 24 off-ramp Monday night and plowed into several other vehicles and a Cumberland Farms store and gas station at the bottom of the ramp.

Police say a woman driving the out-of-control car and three other people were brought to a hospital. Authorities say their injuries don’t appear to be life-threatening. The name of the woman hasn’t been released.

Authorities say there is moderate damage to the store, but the gas pumps weren’t damaged.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
