1 dead following Route 101 crash in Milford
MILFORD — One person died Wednesday in a two-car crash on Route 101, police said.
Police said the driver of a 2006 Toyota Highlander crossed the center line of Route 101 shortly after 10 a.m. Wednesday and drove into the path of a 2001 Chevrolet pickup truck driven by Richard A. Benotti, 78, of Temple, and its passenger side was hit.
The Highlander driver was pronounced dead at the scene. Police did not identify the person, saying family hadn't yet been notified as of Wednesday night. Benotti was not injured in the crash, police said.
Neither speed nor alcohol appear to be factors in the accident, police said.
