  Eyewitnesss News

Four people were injured when an out-of-control car crashed into several vehicles outside a Connecticut convenience store late Monday night.

Police say the vehicle was going too fast when it exited off Interstate 95 at exit 24 in Fairfield before plowing into five other cars and careening into the Cumberland Farms store and gas station at the bottom of the ramp.

Two employees extinguished a small fire before first responders arrived on the scene.

The 31-year-old woman driving the car and three other people were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The other victims were all in vehicles struck by the woman.

There was moderate damage to the store, but the gas pumps weren’t impacted.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
