MERIDEN --   It was a chaotic night for Meriden police who are investigating several incidents that occurred Friday night.

The first incident reported was a car versus pedestrian accident that shut down part of I-691. Connecticut State Police said exit 8 was closed due to the accident where life-threatening injuries were reported. The highway has since reopened, and State Police confirmed that the unidentified man has been killed.

In another scene, Saleh Alsqrami, an employee at the Irving Gas Station, said he had customers rush into the gas station on Broad Street demanding him to call the cops.

"Somebody was outside, full of blood. Looked like he wanted to commit suicide. I take a step outside and saw him slicing his throat. So after that, he left and started running and that's about it," said Alsqrami.

Meriden police are also investigating an untimely death at this time. It is unclear where the death investigation is taking place.

Police do not know if these incidents are connected in any nature.
