Manchester Police said one person is dead after crashing into a cement wall Friday night.

Officials said the accident happened at approximately 4:30 p.m. on Buckland Street at the I-84 East HOV lane off-ramp. Responding crews found a heavily damaged car that had crashed into a concrete retaining wall.

The driver was transported to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead, police said. His identity is being withheld pending family notification.
