SOUTHINGTON — A 73-year-old local man was killed in a one-car crash on Saturday.
James Dicaprio, of Southington, was driving a GMC Sierra pickup truck when he crashed around 2 p.m. in the area of 1244 Meriden Ave., Lt. Keith Egan said in a statement. Dicaprio was later pronounced dead at a hospital.
Dicaprio was driving the truck north on Meriden Avenue with a six-month-old Doberman dog, Egan said. The truck left the road, drove across a lawn, struck a chain link fence and ultimately stopped against a Lavorgna Oil truck. The dog appeared uninjured and was taken by Southington Animal Control.
