A Connecticut man was killed and three others seriously injured during a single-vehicle crash.

Blanchard Baisden, age 39, of East Hartford, was killed around 12:27 a.m., Sunday, April 25, during a crash in the area of Fraser Pace in Hartford, said Lt. Aaron Boisvert of the Hartford Police.

According to Boisvert,  when officers arrived on the scene they found a gray 2003 Nissan Pathfinder had crashed into the rear end of a parked, unoccupied, semi-tractor trailer. 

Baisden, the driver, was pronounced dead on the scene, he said.

A 36-year-old female passenger was transported to Hartford Hospital with potentially life-threatening injuries. Two additional passengers of the Nissan, a 38-year-old male, and a 39-year-old male were transported to the Saint Francis Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. 

Detectives from the Crime Scene Division responded to the scene and assumed control of the investigation. 

The investigation of the crash is ongoing.
