A Western Connecticut State University student has died following an early morning car crash.

State police say 19-year-old Michael Deangelo, of East Haven, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say Deangelo's car veered off Interstate 95 in Old Lyme and crashed into a sound barrier around 1 a.m. Wednesday.

No other vehicles were involved. The crash remains under investigation.

Deangelo was a freshman at Western Connecticut State University and member of the school's baseball team.
