A 21-year-old has critical injuries after a two-vehicle crash overnight in Fairfield County.

It happened around 11:05 p.m. on Saturday, May 7, in Stamford.

A 2017 Honda Accord being driven by a 42-year-old Stamford resident was southbound on Courtland Avenue. 

The operator of the Honda said he was negotiating a left turn into a driveway on Courtland Avenue when he was struck from behind by a 2005 Infiniti G35 being driven by a 21-year-old Stamford resident, according to Stamford Police.

The Infiniti struck the Honda with enough force to propel it a significant distance further south on Courtland Avenue, police said.

The operator of the Honda was transported to Stamford Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.

The operator of the Infiniti was transported to Stamford Hospital for life-threatening injuries and is currently being listed in critical condition, said police.

Speed is believed to have been a factor in this collision, police said.

The collision remains under investigation, and no charges have been filed as of yet.
