SOUTH WINDSOR, CT (WFSB) -

Three different towns are investigating serious crashes that all happened around the same time early Sunday morning.

Police in South Windsor and Manchester are investigating serious crashes resulting in two deaths.

In South Windsor, police said one man was killed when the vehicle he was driving struck a utility pole on Oakland Road near Foster Street.

Emergency crews found that a late-model Camaro had left the roadway and struck an unoccupied parked car. Police said the Camaro then struck and broke a utility pole. The driver was identified as a 56-year-old South Windsor man.

Police said the accident occurred around 3:30 a.m. and resulted in the road being closed.

"We look at mechanical defects with the vehicle, the condition of the operator, certainly speed, weather, roadway," said Lt.. Scott Custer of South Windsor police.

In Manchester, a man was killed when his car crashed into a utility pole on Buckland Hills Drive near the Buckland Hills Mall. Police said a Subaru WRX was traveling eastbound at a high rate of speed when it left the roadway and crashed into a utility pole in front of 233 Buckland Hills Drive.

Police said the driver of the vehicle was entrapped in the heavily damaged vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene. An adult male passenger was able to walk away from the crash and was transported to Hartford Hospital.

In Enfield, another serious crash happened at Route 5 and Post office Road. At least one person was badly injured.
