COVENTRY, Conn. (AP) — The victim of a fatal weekend car crash in Connecticut was identified by authorities Monday as a UConn student.
Cole Montefusco, 21, of Redding, died in the crash on Route 44 in Coventry at about 4 a.m. Saturday, Coventry police said.
He had been thrown from the vehicle and was found on the side of the road suffering from serious injuries, police said. He was the only person in the car and no other vehicles were involved, police said.
He was taken to Hartford Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Montefusco was a senior studying finance, the University of Connecticut state in a statement Monday. He had earned a Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst internship and membership in the Delta Sigma Pi professional business fraternity.
He was a member of the Zeta Beta Tau social fraternity and a member of the Alpha Lambda Delta honor society.
“Cole exemplified the UConn spirit in his academic perseverance, community involvement and pursuit of his goals,” the school said in the statement.
