Bloomfield, CT (April 20, 2020) - Emergency personnel responded to reports of a vehicle crashing into a residential home and then catching fire.
Police arrived to the scene of the accident. It occurred at the intersection of East Burnham Street and Greenwood Avenue. Shortly after arriving, they saw that the vehicle was on fire due to the collision. Firefighters extinguished the flame and removed the driver, whose name has not been released to the public as of now. His only identification has been that he's 33 and from Hartford.
EMS were also dispatched to the scene, and pronounced the Hartford driver dead at the scene.
Investigators have a few theories as to how the accident occurred. Their most probable theory is that it was a single car accident and that the man was driving east on East Burnham Street. He then failed to turn correctly on Greenwood Avenue, and he struck the northwestern corner of the house. Consequently, the house suffered extreme damages, especially related to the flames. Luckily, the one person who was in the house exited safely and did not get hurt.
Reconstruction of the home is ongoing and police are investigating.
Our thoughts are with the victim and their family.
