Police ID 3 victims killed in Branford crash
Three people were killed in a car crash in a Connecticut shoreline town, and police say speed may have been a factor.
The early morning car crash happened in Branford Thursday morning.
The driver has been identified as 17-year-old Megan Nicole Povilaitis, of East Haven. The passengers, who are siblings, have been identified as Anthony Dudchik, 20, and Robert Dudchik, 22. The two passengers are the children of former state lawmaker and current WTNH political host Tom Dudchik.
Police say another driver came upon the wreckage along a long stretch of road north of I-95.
Investigators say speed appears to have played a role in the crash.
The town's police department is making its social worker available to anyone who needs support.
Anyone with any information in reference to the accident is encouraged to call Sgt. Christopher Romanello at 203-481-4241.
