A man has died after a two-car crash on Route 111 in Trumbull Monday afternoon.
Route 111 was closed while police conducted their investigation. It has since partially reopened, and is expected to fully reopen by the morning.
Authorities responded to the area at about 4 p.m. after receiving several 911 calls reporting the serious crash at the intersection of Technology Drive.
Police said 22-year-old Xavier Miller, of Bridgeport, was the driver of an Infiniti that crashed into a Subaru Crosstrek. The Infiniti went up in flames and first responders were unable to access to car because it was entangled with an electrical utility pole.
