A 69-year-old Connecticut man was killed on his birthday after he plowed into the back of a parked vehicle while getting off of I-91.

Richard Vining, of Branford, was killed around 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 29, in Middletown, when he was exiting I-91 southbound when he hit an unoccupied parked vehicle, said the Connecticut State Police.

The impact caused his vehicle to overturn onto its left side and proceeded to penetrate through the metal beam guide rail adjacent to the acceleration lane, state police said.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene due to the disabling damage. 

The case remains under investigation.

 Any witness to the collision is asked to contact Trooper John Wilson #1060, at Troop H, at 860-534-1098 or through email at john.wilson@ct.gov
