Cromwell’s accident explained:

Quentin Williams sadly he passed away in the accident (D-Middletown) today.


Two people, including a state legislator, have been killed in a horrific wrong-way accident on Route 9 in Cromwell.

The crash happened just before 1 a.m. near exit 18. Authorities say one of the cars involved was traveling northbound in the left lane on the south side of the highway near the 18 exit ramp.

According to police, a second car entered the southbound lane from the north and collided head-on with the first car.


The first car burst into flames after coming to rest on the left shoulder, and the driver was pronounced dead there.

In the grassy median, the second car, the one traveling the wrong way, finally stopped, according to authorities. The driver of the second vehicle was also confirmed dead at the scene.

State police are still working to identify the second victim. In honor of Williams, Governor Ned Lamont ordered the state flag to be flown at half mast.

“This is devastating news and I am incredibly saddened by this tragedy,” Lamont said.

“Quentin had an infectiously upbeat personality, and he loved the opportunity to represent Middletown, his longtime home, at the state capitol. Public service was his passion and he always stood up for the people of his hometown.”

He was a genuine person with a genuine soul and he will be missed. My prayers are with his family, including his wife Carrissa and his mother, the Queen, as well as his friends and colleagues in the General Assembly.”

Police are still investigating this matter and people with witnesses are asked to call Officer Michael Dead #416 at Troop H, 860-534-1000.
