A driver was killed in a single car crash in Newtown this weekend.  Emergency responders were dispatched to Toddy Hill Road near Quarry Ridge Road around 5am Sunday.  The driver was found unconscious inside the vehicle.  CPR was performed at the scene on 22-year old Brian Hensel before being transported to the Hospital with life threatening injuries.  He was pronounced dead at the hospital yesterday.  Police spokesman Lt Aaron Bahamonde says it's always a tragedy whenever a young person's life ends in a tragic accident such as this.  He added that officers did their best in providing first aid, but to have this outcome hurts.  Hensel was a student at Central Connecticut and Newtown Police have reached out to provide whatever support and comfort for his professors and classmates they can.
