A violent three car collision took place on Sunday afternoon on Rt. 202 in Washington, Connecticut that has left multiple people injured, and unfortunately, took a Danbury woman's life. The Connecticut State Police are asking for your help looking for witnesses of the incident.

According to the Connecticut State Police, Troop L in Litchfield, at 1:34PM yesterday, (Sunday, April 18) a 2018 Mercedes Benz, being driven by Glenn Kaplan of Riverside Drive in NYC was traveling Eastbound on Rt. 202 (Litchfield Turnpike) near the intersection of Garland Road in Washington.

Also traveling Eastbound in 202, right behind the Mercedes, was a 2018 Ram Pickup truck being driven by Steven Merchant, of Sawmill Road in Plymouth. At the same time, a third vehicle, a 2015 Subaru Forester, being driven by Sharon Piech, of Crow's Nest Lane in Danbury, was traveling Westbound on 202 through the area.

For an unknown reason, Piech's Forester veered into the eastbound lane, sideswiping Kaplan's Mercedes, and striking Merchant's Ram head on. Kaplan and his passenger reported no injuries from the sideswipe and the vehicle was towed from the scene.

Merchant and his three passengers reported injuries, and they were all transported to Danbury Hospital for evaluation. Unfortunately, Piech succumbed to her injuries from the accident while en route to New Milford Hospital.

The accident remains under investigation, and anyone with information is being asked to call TFC Kieltyka #641 at Troop L in Litchfield at (860) 626-7900.

All of us here at Townsquare Media Danbury are keeping Sharon's family and friends in our thoughts during this extremely difficult time.
