Cromwell Accident explained:

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

Two persons, including a state lawmaker, were killed in a horrific wrong-way crash on Route 9 in Cromwell.

The accident happened shortly before 1 a.m. near exit 18. Officials claim that one of the involved automobiles was traveling northbound in the left lane on the southbound side of the road near the exit 18 on-ramp.

The Middletown native and 39-year-old Democrat was sworn in for his third term in office Wednesday. He was also chosen to serve as co-chair of the legislature’s labor committee. He has previously served in the 100th Congressional District.

According to the website for the Connecticut House Democrats, Williams was the first African American to represent the City of Middletown in the Connecticut General Assembly.

In 2011, he took office as city treasurer, and in 2015, he was re-elected. Williams was chosen to serve on the planning and zoning committee in 2007 and was duly chosen as chair in 2009.

State flags were ordered to be lowered to half-staff immediately in Williams’ honor by Governor Ned Lamont.

On Thursday, the legislative office building is closed. Additionally, all committee meetings are canceled.

How did Quentin Williams die?

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

The first car exploded in flames after coming to rest on the left shoulder, and the driver was declared dead there.

In the grassy center median, the second car—the one traveling the wrong way—finally stopped, according to authorities. The second vehicle’s driver 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 that the state flag be flown at half-staff.

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

“Quentin had an infectiously optimistic personality, and he loved having the opportunity to represent his lifelong home of Middletown at the State Capitol. Public service was his passion, and he was always advocating on behalf of 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 Queen, as well as his friends and colleagues in the General Assembly.”

Police are still looking into this matter and people with any witnesses are requested to call Trooper Michael Dead #416 at Troop H, 860-534-1000.
