SHELTON, Conn. (AP) — Two people were killed in a crash involving two cars late Sunday in Connecticut, police said.

The accident happened around 11:30 p.m. near Southbank Park along the Housatonic River in Shelton.

Police say 20-year-old Lily Pirulli, of Monroe, and 31-year-old Adrian Miles, of Ansonia, were killed when the car they were driving in struck an SUV.

Two other occupants were injured and taken to the hospital. One of them has since been released. The other remains in critical condition. The driver of the SUV wasn’t injured.

Police haven’t said what might have caused the crash. They say the investigation is ongoing.

The crash prompted the road to be shut down for several hours while police investigated. It has since reopened.
