TOWN OF SOUTHEAST – A Stamford, Connecticut man died Thursday from injuries he sustained in a crash on Route 22 in the Town of Southeast on Wednesday, April 28.

State Police said a 2008 Honda CRV driven by Ricardo Bregante, 57, of Carmel, was traveling north on Route 22 passing to the right of vehicles on the shoulder of the road.

Bregante struck a 2017 Ford Edge driven by Christopher Hammill, 47, of Stamford, who was turning right from the northbound lane into the Gulf station at 1565 Route 22.

Bregante and the other driver were transported to Danbury Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The investigation is ongoing.
