WESTPORT - State police have tentatively identified a pair of Stratford sisters killed in a crash along the Merritt Parkway over the weekend, but are still awaiting dental records. Friends say Chantel and Tiffany Osorio were returning from Chantel's birthday celebration in Manhattan on Saturday morning when their car veered off the road and burst into flames. Investigators say their Chevy Cobalt crossed two lanes of traffic and slammed into two trees on the side of the road. The accident closed the northbound lanes between exits 42 and 44. Police are still investigating the cause of the crash.
