Connecticut State Police say a 2-year-old boy was killed in a four-vehicle crash on Interstate 95 in Waterford on Sunday.
The car in which Dacari Robinson was riding Sunday slowed with traffic that backed up due to previous accidents. Witnesses report that a truck driven by Gerard Dube of Swansea, Massachusetts, struck the car and two other vehicles. The 58-year-old Dube was not injured.
Robinson, of Meriden, was in a child safety seat. Police said Monday he was declared dead at the scene. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner confirmed that he died of accidental blunt head trauma.
Two adults and a 9-year-old child in the car were injured and taken to a hospital.
About a half-hour later, six cars and a tractor-trailer were involved in an accident nearby on I-95. Police say seven people were taken to area hospitals.
Police said one passenger was unresponsive.
