WEATHERSFIELD – An elderly local resident was found dead in his vehicle
Monday morning near Downer’s Four Corner after he apparently drove off the
roadway and struck a tree.
First responders from Weathersfield and Reading responded to the
intersection of Route 106 and Amsden Road shortly after 11 a.m. and
immediately reported that a male in his eighties was dead on the scene.
Route 106 was closed down for over an hour while volunteer firefighters
extricated the driver from the wreckage and Weathersfield Police conducted
their crash scene investigation.
Windsor County State’s Attorney Michael Kainen said early Monday afternoon
that he had been contacted and that he had given permission for removal of
the body from the scene.
