An investigation is underway after a 48-year-old man died in a scooter crash in Connecticut.

Authorities in New Haven County received reports that a man crashed his scooter in the 400 block of South Colony Street in Meriden at about 7:40 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 12, the Meriden Police Department said.

When officers arrived, they found two good samaritans providing emergency care to the unresponsive man, according to the report.

The man was pronounced dead at the hospital, police said.

Investigators determined that the man was traveling north on Old Colony Road from Wallingford, and he turned onto South Colony Street, heading north.

He was then found lying in a front yard with the scooter on its side, authorities said.

The man's identity will be released at a later date, police said.
