A fatal car crash on Route 195 in Mansfield Tuesday night had state police investigating late into the evening hours, according to police officials.

At least one person died in the incident, a Connecticut State Police official confirmed, but no further information on the extent of the incident was made available. Officials did not state whether the victim was a UConn student.

The crash occurred near the junction of Route 195 and Baxter Road, which is adjacent to The Adventure Park at Storrs. Police closed Route 195 between Cedar Swamp Hollow Road and Baxter Road for several hours while investigating the scene.

One Mansfield resident was unable to return to his home Tuesday night, as the investigation left Route 195 completely inaccessible in the closed off section.
