I-84 Crash

One person was taken to the hospital after a crash on I-84 in Manchester.

MANCHESTER, CT (WFSB) - One person has died after a crash in Manchester.

It happened just before 10 Wednesday morning on I-84.

Officials say a 2002 Buick Park Avenue was traveling in the HOV lane when it suddenly drove into the median and crashed into a concrete bridge support.

The driver, identified as Michael Burns, 49, of Ellington, had to be extricated from the vehicle.

He was taken to Hartford Hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries.

The HOV lanes on I-84 East and West were closed while authorities investigated.

Any witnesses or anyone that may have dashcam footage of the crash are asked to contact State Police Trooper John Wilson at 860-534-1098 or by email at john.wilson@ct.gov.
