State police said that a 21-year-old unidentified man was driving southbound on River Road just after 10 p.m. local time when he lost control and the vehicle rolled over, NBC affiliate WVIT reported.

The driver and three passengers were all from Bethel and between the ages of 19 and 21, according to WVIT and CT Insider. The three survivors were transported to Hartford Hospital.
