TRUMBULL, CT (WFSB) -

An East Haven man was arrested at the scene of a deadly crash early Saturday morning.

The crash happened at 6:30 a.m. on Route 8 in Trumbull.

Drew Bridgman was driving southbound on Route 8 when he rear-ended a vehicle in front of him. According to police, this caused both of the cars to veer off the highway into the median.

Bridgman's car hit a metal beam guardrail, which caused the other vehicle to roll over and hit a concrete bridge support.

Bridgman, 23, was arrested after he was determined to be under the influence at the time of the crash, according to police.

The driver of the second car, Miguel Aguilar, 44, of Naugatuck, was taken to Bridgeport Hospital where he was pronounced dead from injuries sustained at the accident.

According to police, Bridgman was released on a $100,000 bond and is expected to appear in court on March, 10.
