Police are looking for witnesses after a man was pinned under a tractor-trailer on Interstate 84 in Connecticut and killed.
The accident happened on Monday, Jan. 23 around 1:20 p.m. just before Exit 69 on I-84 eastbound in Tolland, according to state police.
According to authorities, a Mercedes sedan driven by the man who was killed had been traveling in front of a tractor-trailer in the right lane when it lost control in the snowy conditions. The tractor-trailer then struck the sedan on the driver's side, after which it became pinned under the larger vehicle.
The driver of the sedan, 59-year-old Stephen Gharabegian of Lexington, Massachusetts, was then taken to Hartford Hospital with life-threatening injuries where he later died.
The accident is still being investigated, and witnesses or anyone with dash camera footage is asked to contact Trooper Daniel Hill at 860-896-3200 ext. 8006 or Daniel.Hill@ct.gov.
