It happened at around 1:25 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 25 in New Haven County on the southbound side when a Chevrolet Silverado was traveling northbound in the southbound lanes in West Haven, Connecticut State Police said. 

The pickup truck then crashed into a Nissan Altima while in the left lane. 

Following impact, the Silverado entered the center lane and collided with a southbound Nissan Sentra. 

The operator of the Chevrolet Silverado and the three occupants of the Nissan Altima sustained fatal injuries, state police said.

The four have been identified as:

  • Fairfield County resident Jolie Lubin, age 23, of the town of Trumbull, a passenger in the Altima;
  • Fairfield County resident Samantha Birchard, age 22, of the city of Norwalk, also a passenger in the Altima.

The two occupants of the Sentra -- a 42-year-old Long Island man who resides in Dix Hills and a 39-year-old woman also from Dix Hills -- sustained life-threatening injuries and were transported to a local hospital via ambulance.
