Two occupants of a car died as a result of a crash into a tractor trailer on Route 2 in Marlborough, CT on November 24, 2013 at about 4:20 am. The crash occurred near exit 13. The tractor trailer was reportedly parked on the roadside prior to the collision. The cause of the crash has not been reported. Without regard to this particular accident, in general, late night accidents at this time of the year can have several causes such as drowsiness, driver falling asleep, distracted driving, cell phone use, drunk driving, or black ice from wet roads freezing as the temperatures drop. As someone who drives this road every day, animals on the road can also be a factor. Extra caution is a good idea at night time and dusk under these conditions. One Connecticut traffic death is too many. Please drive cautiously.
