Nia Mcdougald Dead, Four Injured in a Four-Car Crash on I-84 in Farmington

Nia Mcdougald Death –  Nia Mcdougald, 20, of Windsor, was transported to Hartford Hospital where she was pronounced dead. Nia was involved in a four-car crash on I-84 in Farmington Tuesday night during which a large pickup truck came barreling across the median and slammed into her car. Her passenger, Chancellor Thomas Ross, 22, of Hartford, was taken to Saint Francis Hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said.

According to state police, the crash happened shortly before 7:15 p.m. when two vehicles in the east lanes between exits 37 and 39 collided. Troopers said they didn’t know what caused the 2007 Ford F150 driven by Sean C. Jackson, 56, of Bloomfield and the 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser driven by Monica A. Collins-Saatci, 37, of Middletown, to make contact.

The pickup then crossed the median and struck the 2003 Toyota Camry McDougald was driving west in the left lane, police said. The force of the impact pushed the Toyota into another westbound vehicle, a 2020 Jeep Compass driven by Joseph Didomenico, 35, of New Milford.

In addition to McDougald and Ross, Jackson and his passenger, Jason D. Keyes, 48, of Coventry, and Didomenico were taken to area hospitals. Jackson and Keyes are being treated for injuries that are considered serious, state police said, and Didomenico’s injuries are believed to be minor. Collins-Saatci and her passenger, Gregory Alphanso, 38, of Bristol did not appear to be injured. Currently, the crash remains under investigation.

Nia Mcdougald obituary and funeral service will be released by the family, our prayers and thoughts are with the family of the deceased.
