A fatal car accident on Route 8 claimed the life of a 41-year old man from New York. Connecticut police announced that Robert Goodwin of Saratoga Springs, NY, died at Yale-New Haven Hospital.
Goodwin’s truck was in the southbound lane on Route 8 when, according to authorities, a car struck him head-on in the oncoming direction. The other car was in the wrong lane of the highway, and apparently did not see Goodwin in time.
The other driver, Finn McDaniel of Milford, Ct, came onto the highway from exit 20 and began driving northbound before hitting Goodwin’s truck, said police. Both men were then brought to the hospital from the scene of the crash, where Goodwin later died.
Our thoughts and prayers extend to the family of the deceased.
