BRIDGEPORT - Police say two people were killed following a serious two-car crash in Bridgeport Saturday night.

The crash happened at around 11:15 p.m. at the intersection of Madison Avenue and Queen Street.

Police say speed was likely a factor in the wreck. They say an eyewitness saw the car traveling north on Madison Avenue before the driver lost control, causing the vehicle to become airborne and roll over.

Authorities say a man died in the crash and woman died after being transported to an area hospital. A third person is in critical condition.

The identities of the two people who were killed have not yet been released.

Residents say Madison Avenue and Queen Street is a very dangerous intersection and it was only a matter of time before a tragedy took place.
