Middlebury Police say one person was killed in a car accident there Tuesday morning.
Police got a call at 9:14 a.m. for a car that had hit a tree on the side of the road near the intersection of South Street and Long Meadow Road.
When police got there they pulled Robert Graham, 45, of Orange from the car. He was unresponsive. Emergency crews administered CPR. He was taken to Waterbury Hospital and pronounced dead.
A family friend contacted Orange Live this morning requesting help for his wife and children.
The text from a new GO FUND ME page is as follows:
The 8th grade Amity Force travel basketball team is asking for your help. Rob Graham, Tessa’s dad, passed unexpectedly today. Our hearts and prayers are with all of them at this time.
As some of you know, and some may not know, they were in the middle of moving to Pennsylvania where Tara’s family is from. Their house is on the market and were hoping to make the transition after the school year ended.
Instead of sending flowers or a fruit basket, we thought it would be most helpful if we could help them defray any costs of their move or any expenses that may suddenly arise.
We thank you for any support and help that you may be able to provide.
