SHELTON, Conn. (AP) - State police say two people have died in an early morning head-on crash on Route 8 in Shelton.

Police said in their accident report that 29-year-old Kelly Wootten was driving north on the southbound side of the highway near Exit 13 at about 1 a.m. Thursday when she crashed into a southbound vehicle driven by 30-year-old Fernando Moreno-Rivas, of Stratford.

Both victims “sustained serious bodily injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene.”

According to the report, Moreno-Rivas was wearing a seat belt, but it’s not clear if Wootten was.

The crash remains under investigation.
