Southbury – Fatality In Head-On Collision
An SUV and a tractor-trailer collided head-on in Southbury last Friday.
At around 3:45 p.m., local police responded to an area near the intersection of Southford and Curt Smith Roads after receiving reports of a crash in the area. According to officials, 37-year-old Pamela Sheehan of Newtown was driving her Toyota 4Runner south on Route 67 when her vehicle collided head-on with a tractor-trailer on the opposite lane. Sheehan sustained critical injuries in the crash and was pronounced dead shortly after. No word yet on the identity and status of the truck driver, though authorities reported Chris and Todd Hannan of Southbury as the registered owners of the semi. The incident is still under investigation.
