Monroe – Fatal Rollover Crash

A motorist died in a crash in Monroe yesterday afternoon.

Local authorities received reports of the crash a few minutes before noon and quickly sent emergency crews to Route 111. According to responders, a vehicle struck a bridge structure and overturned. The driver of the vehicle sustained critical injuries in the collision and was transported to St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport for treatment. The victim died shortly after. A section of Route 111 near its intersection with Route 34 was closed to facilitate an investigation into the cause of the crash.
