    A Newington man has been arrested and charged with manslaughter after a head-on crash on Route 6 in Farmington in September that killed two people.

    Police said 54-year-old Edward Brozynski, of Newington, was intoxicated and drove his Honda Accord into the opposite lane of Colt Highway, near Reservoir Road, at 11:45 p.m. on Sept. 14 and collided with a Mazda 3 sedan.

    Four adults were in the Mazda including 66-year-old Benoit Boislard, and 66-year-old Rejean St. Pierre, both of Quebec, Canada, police said. Both victims were passengers in the Mazda and died from injuries, according to authorities.

    Brozynski was charged with two counts of second-degree manslaughter with a motor vehicle, illegal operation of a motor vehicle without minimum insurance, second-degree assault with a motor vehicle and additional charges.
