Connecticut Musician killed in crash


An Amston man was killed early Saturday morning after the vehicle he was driving veered off the road on Rt. 85 in Hebron.

According to police, 28-year-old Grayson Minney was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

Minney was the lead singer of local Connecticut band "Columbia Fields".

Minney was traveling home from work after a shift at the Wood-n-Tap in Vernon.

Police say Minney was driving south on Rt. 85, just north of Rt. 94 around 3:40 a.m. Minney lost control of the vehicle and veered off the west side of the road before striking a metal guardrail.

The car then became airborne, police said, before it landed in a grassy shoulder. The car then struck two trees and came to a rest on the west shoulder facing south.

A memorial has been set up at the scene of the crash.
