Family of man killed in Route 25 crash is fundraising for funeral
A Trumbull man was killed Saturday evening in a crash on Route 25.
Brendan T. Murren, 24, lost control of his car while switching lanes on Route 25 North and went up a small embankment and into a tree, according to state police. The car then rolled over onto its roof, police said.
Murren was sent to St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport, where he was pronounced dead. Murren’s family is raising funds for the funeral on GoFundMe, where over $12,000 was raised by 7 p.m. on Sunday.
The crash occurred south of Route 111 in Trumbull around 3:40 p.m.
Roughly two hours later, there were reports of stop and go traffic, causing delays up to half an hour, on Route 25 north.
Just before 6 p.m., state police shut down the highway’s northbound lanes at Exit 9. That closure lasted nearly three hours as crews worked to clear the scene, reopening around 9 p.m
