1 Dead, 1 Missing After Connecticut Car Crash

MERIDEN, Conn. (AP) — Meriden police say one person has died in an early morning crash but they are still looking for another occupant of the vehicle who apparently fled after the crash.

The crash was reported at about 2:40 a.m. Friday on Maple Avenue.

Police say the car, which they confirmed had been stolen, struck a tree.

Just minutes earlier officers had responded to report of two men “checking” cars in a nearby residential neighborhood. Officers saw a vehicle fleeing the area at a high rate of speed.

One of the vehicle’s occupants was dead at the scene.

Police dogs were called to the scene in an attempt to locate the other person.
