(Danbury, Conn./CBS Connecticut) – Three people are dead following a crash this morning in Danbury.

According to Mayor Mark Boughton, the crash on Mill Plain Road was the result of a pursuit that began in New York State.

Boughton says around 4:30 this morning, the car with five occupants was headed back to Connecticut when a New York State sheriff attempted to pull the vehicle over.

The mayor says the sheriff broke off the pursuit before entering Connecticut but the suspect vehicle continued on at a high rate of speed.

In addition to the three dead, two others in the car were injured.

Boughton says the vehicle had Connecticut plates and was apparently being pursued for a traffic violation in New York.
