Wallingford police confirmed that Joseph Tomanelli, 56 of Cheshire, died and his son was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
Calls reporting the crash came in at 6:30 p.m.
The FAA and the NTSB are on their way to the scene. Police said the road will be closed until Tuesday morning. They believe the plane was attempting to land at the time of the crash, hit a chain link fence and then landed in the road.
Last week a small plane crashed near the airport in East Windsor, killing both people on board.
