The identity of the driver killed in a weekend crash in Brookfield has been released.  Police say 27-year old Nelson Zuniga was the only person in the vehicle during the single-car crash on Candlewood Lake Road.  He lived in Waterbury, but was a New Milford High School graduate. 

His car went off the roadway Saturday night and hit a utility pole and parked car.  It took nearly 20 minutes to extricate the man from the heavily damaged vehicle and he was later pronounced dead at the hospital. 

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help pay funeral expenses for Zuniga. 

The accident remains under investigation.  Results of a toxicology report, which is always conducted by the medical examiner’s office, will take 6 to 8 week.  It was determined that Zuniga died from blunt impact to his head and torso.
