NORWICH, CT (WFSB) – Two people died in a crash on Interstate 395 in Norwich on Saturday evening.

Police identified the victims as 85-year-old John Adams and 79-year-old Joan Adams both of Uncasville.

The crash prompted police to close the highway between Exits 14 and 18 on the Northbound side just after 6:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Police said Adams’ car went through the median from the Southbound side and over into the Northbound side, hitting a second vehicle in the left lane before rolling on to its side and struck by a third car.

Police said a victim in the second car is suspected to have serious injuries. Troopers are investigating to determine the cause of the crash.
