The town of Canton Volunteer Fire and EMS Department, Canton Police, New Hartford Volunteer Ambulance, Life Star and the North Central Municipal Accident Reconstruction Team were all at the scene. The road remained closed early Saturday evening.

    I drive that road almost every day.
    The average speed is always approx. 15 mph OVER the posted speed limit.
    This is the case on MOST CT roads.
    And, texting while speeding.
    Who can stop this?
    Only the police.
    Slow down.
    Give yourself plenty of time.
    Pull over to text/call.
    Be considerate.
    Life can be taken in an instant.
    Police: Enforce the law. Please.
