Police have identified the victim of a fatal single-vehicle crash in Fairfield County in which the driver allegedly lost control of his pickup truck and smashed into a median divider and was thrown from the vehicle and pinned underneath.
Oscar Reyes, age 39, of Stamford, was killed around 12:32 a.m., Monday, July 19, on Washington Boulevard in Stamford, said Sgt. Jefferey Booth.
According to Booth, a 2005 Ford F-150 was traveling northbound on Washington Boulevard, just north of the intersection with Bridge Street.
At some point, the truck hit the raised median divider causing the driver, Reyes to lose control of the vehicle.
The pickup truck then spun across the northbound lanes of Washington Boulevard where it struck the curb and rolled over onto the driver’s side.
Reyes was partially ejected, and pinned under the vehicle.
Responding officers Justin Rosado and Jill Moller, along with two Good Samaritans on the scene were able to move the vehicle enough for Rosado to pull the driver free of the vehicle.
