WESTPORT -

Police have identified the man killed in a car accident earlier this week as 39-year-old Cullen Walsh, of Weston.

 The 39-year-old died in a car crash in Westport early Sunday morning.

Police say Walsh may have been speeding when he lost control and hit a utility pole on Weston Road.

 Wires came crashing down and caught fire. Walsh's car was completely engulfed when crews got there, and he was unable to escape.

Damalyse Pientle worked at Minute Men Cleaners in Weston the past four years, and says Walsh would come in once a week.

"Cullen was the perfect person that if you had a problem, he would take care of it right then and there with that smile. And kind and talkative and so forth and so on," says Pientle.

Neighbors says Walsh and his wife moved to the neighborhood a few years ago with their dog, Murphy.
