    One Dead, Two Injured in Hartford Crash

    A driver died and three others were injured after a crash early Saturday morning in Hartford.

    Police were called to 350 Barbour St. around 2 a.m. where they found two heavily damaged vehicles.

    According to police, Devan Harris, a 27-year-old man from South Windsor, was killed when the Volkswagen Jetta he was driving collided with a Toyota Camry.

    He was pronounced dead on the scene.

    The Hartford Fire Department extricated two people from the Camry who were trapped. Bystanders helped a third person out of the car. Three people from the camry were transported to St. Francis Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

    Police say that the licenses for both drivers were suspended at the time of the crash.

    The collision caused significant front-end damage to both cars, which NBC Connecticut crews at the scene said appear to be totaled.

    Both drivers had suspended licenses, according to Hartford police Deputy Chief Brian Foley.

    An accident reconstruction team was on scene as of 6:29 a.m. and Barbour Street is shut down for several blocks as they continue to investigate.
