    A driver was killed after crashing into a concrete barrier on Interstate 84 west in Waterbury late Saturday night.

    An ambulance transported him to Saint Mary's Hospital in Waterbury, where he later died.

    The cause of the accident is unknown. It was dark at the time, but the weather was clear and the roads were dry, state police said. Hyman was wearing a seat belt, but his airbag didn't deploy, state police said.

    It happened a couple hours before state police shut down the highway at exit 25 in Waterbury for five hours as part of a highway redevelopment project in the area.

    State police are investigating the crashand ask anyone with information to call Trooper Wildman at Troop A in Southbury at 203-267-2200, extension 4372.
