MERIDEN, Conn. (WTNH)– The driver of the SUV that crashed into a Meriden home Tuesday, remains in critical condition Wednesday.
On Tuesday morning, just before 8 a.m., a GMC Envoy left the roadway and smashed into a five-unit building at 629 Broad Street. The driver, identified as 56-year-old Michael Quigley, was transported by Life Star to a nearby hospital for serious injuries. Quigley is in serious condition but officials say he is expected to survive.
The female passenger has been identified as 41-year-old Raya Odell. Odell is now in stable condition and officials say her injuries are not as severe as they were first thought to be.
Police said the driver may have suffered a medical condition before the crash but they have not yet been able to speak to Quigley due to his injuries.
No one inside the building was seriously injured, but the building has been condemned and the five families who live there are now without a home. The Red Cross will help provide temporary shelter for the displaced families.
The crash remains under investigation.
