NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WFSB) - One person is in serious, possibly life-threatening, condition after a crash at the intersection of Peck Street and Blatchley Avenue in New Haven.

Police say they responded at around 2:07 p.m. on a report of a crash involving a Dodge Ram and a Subaru WRX.

When officers and firefighters arrived, they had to use the jaws of life to remove the driver of the WRX from his vehicle.

They were transported to an area hospital with serious, possibly life-threatening, injuries.

Police located surveillance video that captured the crash.

From that video, police found that the WRX was travelling Southbound on Peck Street when they ran a stop sign and collided with the Dodge Ram as it crossed the intersection.

The WRX then veered off the road and struck a tree.

Anyone who witnessed this crash is urged to contact police via phone at 203-946-6304 or through the Department’s anonymous tip-line at 866-888-TIPS (8477).
