Two other drivers were taken to the hospital for minor injuries.

Neighbors on Nicoll Street told Eyewitness News it appears there was some type of medical issue before the crash.

“Our hearts go out to the family of course, that lost the person who died today, we’re grateful. A car is replaceable a human life isn’t,” said Stefan Sinanovich of New Haven.
