One Dead, Three Hurt After Car Falls Through Ice at Bigelow Hollow State Park

Jan 13, 2016

One person has died and three others were injured when their car fell through the ice on a pond at a Connecticut state park.

The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection says the car traveled about 50 yards onto the ice on a pond at Bigelow Hollow State Park in Union before falling through at about 8:00 pm on Tuesday.

The Tolland County Dive Team rescued the vehicle's four occupants.

Two men and a woman were taken to Hartford Hospital. A second woman was taken to Rockville Hospital, where she was pronounced dead at about 11:30 pm.

No names or ages were released, but officials referred to the victims as young adults.

Authorities say it appears the group illegally entered the park after dark.
