State police said the crash happened on the northbound side of the highway between the exit 22 off ramp and the Route 9 North entrance ramp.

A driver lost control of their car for an unknown reason and struck another car, according to police. The driver then veered off the highway and struck a metal beam guiderail next to the shoulder.

The driver was transported to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead. He's been identified as 47-year-old Terence McNichol of Bridgeport.

The person driving the other car refused medical treatment at the scene.

The northbound lanes of I-91 were closed but have since reopened.
