A Texas man was fatally injured Wednesday night as a result of a multi-vehicle collision on Interstate 95 in Greenwich, Connecticut.

Details of the Fatal Greenwich Crash

According to the New Haven Register, Manuel Carlos De Penda, 58, of Bulverde, Texas was killed near Exit 4 on Interstate 95 at around 9:27 pm.

De Penda was a rear seat passenger in a 2014 Honda Accord driven by 22-year-old Manpreet Singh, of Queens Village, New York, which rear-ended a 2013 Chevrolet Cruze, driven by 61-year-old Rosaura Cruz.

The impact of the initial collision forced the Cruze forward into a Ford Focus, driven by Tai Kwok Poon, 61.

De Penda was pronounced dead at the scene. Cruz and a female passenger were transported to Stamford Hospital with minor injuries, and Poon sustained possible injuries. Singh was not injured.

The accident remains under investigation.
