Fatal New Haven Car Crash Under Investigation

Police are investigating a two-car crash that killed one woman and injured three others in New Haven Friday night.

The accident happened around 9:35 p.m. Friday at the intersection of Goffe Street and Ella T. Grasso Boulevard in New Haven. One car drove into a utility pole, causing an area-wide power outage.

One of the drivers, New Haven resident Carolina Chicas-Sabatino, 29, was in a coma and died Saturday night. Police said three adult passengers were in serious but stable condition.

A New Haven officer tried to pull over one of the cars just prior to the crash. The car, which was driving erratically and ran a red light, sped off and got away. The officer later responded to the crash and identified the car.

Police are still investigating and said it could take weeks, maybe months, to file charges.
