According to Police officers, at approximately 10:30 p.m. Thursday night there was a motor vehicle accident that closed Meloy Road.
Police said a 45-year-old East Haven man had fled the scene of a crash in Orange and led police on a chase. Meloy Road was closed between Ridge and Eileen roads, according to police. Torres-Villagran and his passenger, Antonio Pineda, were not hurt.
Kryzkij continued east and hit the front end of a Subaru Outback driven by Hunt.
Since his department is not investigating the crash, Tammaro said he didn’t know the details of what led up to it, including whether Orange police still were chasing the vehicle at the time of the collision.
Both Kryzkij and Hunt were transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital for life-threatening injuries. Orange police had been trying to perform a traffic stop.
Hunt was pronounced dead shortly before midnight.
State police are investigating.
