ENFIELD, CT  (WTIC News) – A serious crash killed one person along Interstate 91 in Enfield, near the Connecticut state line.

Massachusetts State Police said the crash occurred around 7 a.m. in Longmeadow. It involved two tractor-trailers and four cars along the highway, which was shutdown for several hours on Saturday.

Officials say a Peterbuilt tractor trailer struck the rear of another Peterbuilt tractor trailer that was slowing down due to highway construction.

The collision caused the truck to strike 4 more cars that were slowing for the construction, collided with a guardrail, and stopped in the median.

One of the truck drivers, 33-year-old Anthony Gentile of Thomaston, was pronounced dead on scene. Three other people suffered minor injuries, according to police.
