Early Thursday crash in Waterford leaves Uncasville man dead
Waterford — A fatal, single-car crash forced crews to close Interstate 395 south for almost three hours Thursday morning.

According to state police, Stephen Richard Davis Wilmot, 23, of 2 McCulley Place, Uncasville, was driving a 2005 Toyota Camry south when he traveled off the roadway and into a rock face.

Wilmot sustained fatal injuries in the wreck, which remained under investigation.
Anyone with information related to the crash is asked to call Troop E at (860) 848-6500 and ask for Trooper Justin Clachrie.
