    A passenger died after a car struck a utility pole in Orange early Saturday morning.

    Orange police responded to a single-car crash on Grassy Hill Road near the Prudden Lane intersection at about 8:18 a.m.

    A 2008 GMC Envoy veered off a road and hit a utility pole, killing passenger Diane Barbieri, 74, of Waterbury, at the scene and hospitalizing the other two occupants with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

    Orange Police Department's accident reconstruction team is overseeing the investigation.

    Grassy Hill Road remains closed at Prudden Lane as crews continue to repair the damages to the pole.
