    Route 4 was closed in Farmington after a serious crash, but has since reopened.

    A driver who was involved in a head-on crash on Route 4 in Farmington May 12 has died, according to police.

    A white four-door sedan, driven by Michael R. Carroll, 58, of Hartford, and a tan pickup truck, driven by Randolph A. Morgan, 58, of Bristol, collided near Mountain Spring Road on that Monday morning.

    Carroll died on May 31 at Hartford Hospital, police said.

    Police said they received several 911 calls reporting the crash just before 10:30 a.m. that day.

    Carroll was severely injured and was not responding to emergency crews on scene, police said.

    He was extricated from the car, and Life Star, a critical care helicopter, brought him to Hartford Hospital.

    Morgan did not have any obvious injuries but was brought by ambulance to Hartford Hospital as a precaution. He was treated and released.

    The North Central Municipal Accident Reconstruction Squad is investigating the crash.

    The road was closed from the Interstate 84 exit to Mountain Spring Road while police investigated.

    Farmington police ask witnesses or anyone with further information on the crash to call the department at 860-675-2400.
