TOLLAND -- Two people were killed in the overnight hours of Saturday into Sunday on I-84 in Tolland.

State Police say around 12:40 a.m. Sunday, a car driven by Richard Wells was travelling westbound on the highway when it lost control for an unknown reason, and struck the guard rail on the right shoulder.

After it struck the guard rail, the car was thrown back into the right lane. A tractor-trailer was driving, and struck the crashed car, pushing it into another car driving along. Two cars and one tractor-trailer were all involved. The truck lost control and spun across all three lanes of the highway, but the driver, Robson Santos, was not injured.

The driver of the second car had a small injury.

However, Wells and his passenger, Carolyn Everett, were pronounced dead on scene.

State Police are still investigating the crash.
