    One person has died and two others are in the hospital after a car struck a building at 2180 Main Street in Hartford early Saturday morning.

    The crash happened just before 6 a.m. near the intersection of Main and Capen streets.

    Police said the man who died was sitting in the front passenger seat. The male driver and a female passenger are both in stable condition. One is in the Intensive Care Unit and the other received minor injuries, authorities said.

    Their names have not been released, but investigators believe the victims were in their 20s.

    The building they struck contains a few apartments and the Kirbs & Contours Salon is located on the first floor. According to the salon owner, the store was not damaged and should be able to reopen.

    The 2000 block of Main Street and part of Capen Street has been closed while authorities investigate.

    It's not clear if speed as a factor in the crash, but neighbors said they're concerned about the way people drive in the area.
