WALLINGFORD — The Wallingford Police Department is investigating after a person was killed in a crash Sunday evening.

Police say a crash happened between an Audi A3 convertible and a 2012 Nissan Titian pick up truck at the intersection of South Colony Road and Northfield Road around 6:40 p.m.

The driver of the Audi, Edward Carabillo, 90, of Darien was killed in the crash. His passenger, Natalie Einson, 82, was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital where she’s being evaluated for non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the Nissan, Ronald Bonito, 69, of Wallingford, suffered only minor injuries and wasn’t taken to the hospital.
