FAIRFIELD — A two-vehicle car crash in southwest Fairfield left a man dead and another injured Sunday night.
Crews responded to an accident about 5:15 p.m. on Lopes Road at Canyon Hills Drive where a driver was reported unconscious.
Fire responders declared a man dead at the scene, Lt. Randy Fenn said. The driver of another car was transported by ground ambulance to a local hospital with significant injuries.
Fenn said after an initial investigation it appeared that one vehicle was going southbound on Lopes Road and other was making a left turn off of Canyon Hills Drive onto northbound Lopes Road, and the vehicle going southbound hit the turning vehicle broadside.
A section of Lopes Road remained closed about 8:15 p.m. while the police department’s Traffic Investigations Unit worked the scene.
Fenn said police are investigating whether alcohol or speed were factors in the accident.
