NEW HAVEN, CT (WFSB) - One person died following a three-vehicle crash in New Haven on Wednesday night.

New Haven police identified the victim as 42-year-old Jazy White of New Haven.

The crash took place at around 7:30 p.m. on Washington Avenue and Ella T Grasso Boulevard.

“The collision involved three older-styled, gray-colored Honda Accords,” New Haven police said in a news release. “The preliminary investigation indicates that it was a T-bone-style collision, with the third vehicle being struck after the initial impact.”

Police said five people were transported to a hospital, including White. White died soon after arriving there.

“One other individual sustained, serious albeit non-life-threatening injuries, and all vehicles sustained significant damage as a result of the crash,” police said.

The department’s Crash Reconstruction Team responded to the scene to collect evidence and put together witness statements.

Investigators continued the investigation on Thursday with a search for video surveillance footage that may have captured what happened before and at the point of impact.

“The investigation will take some time, and anyone who witnessed this crash or who may have information valuable to the investigators is urged to contact police via phone at 203-946-6304 or through the department’s anonymous tip-line at 866-888-TIPS (8477),” police said.
