NORWALK, Conn. – Norwalk Police have released the names of the two men killed Monday in a Connecticut Avenue car crash, and are seeking witnesses to aid in their investigation.

Stamford residents Frank Peterson III, 50, and Anthony Johnson, 40, were killed in a head on collision at 10:11 p.m. Monday at 789 Connecticut Ave., right at the Darien line, police say.

“Based on the investigation, it is believed that other motorists may have witnessed this incident. We are asking for anyone that observed the collision to please contact Officer Wasilewski at 203-854-3035,” Lt. Terry Blake said in a Tuesday press release.

“Connecticut Avenue remained closed for several hours while Norwalk Police Accident Investigators and the Crime Scene Unit processed the scene,” Blake said Monday.
