OXFORD — A 63-year-old Oxford man was killed Sunday morning after failing to negotiate a curve on Route 67, State Police said.

Shortly after 8:30 a.m., Marcel R. Poulin, of Greenbriar Road, was driving southbound in his 2007 Ford Shelby Mustang when he lost control of the vehicle near the intersection of Route 42. Poulin's car crossed into the northbound lane, struck a guard rail and crashed head on into a large tree, state police said.


Louise M. Poulin, 59, of the same address, was a passenger in the car.


Both Poulins were extricated from the vehicle by the Oxford Fire Department and taken to Bridgeport Hospital.


Marcel Poulin, a building contractor, died at the hospital. Louise Poulin remained at the hospital and was treated for facial injuries.


The crash closed Route 67 in both directions. The two-lane highway reopened shortly after 9:30 a.m., but Oxford and state police remained on the scene continuing their investigation.


The accident occurred near Victory Memorial Park, a rectangular piece of land between Route 67 and Chestnut Tree Hill Road Extension, also known as Route 42.


Over the years, there have been several accidents at the location where Route 42 meets 67.

your assuming he was speeding. The article said nothing about speed, just that he missed a curve

Your right CW there are many things that could have happened here. 8:30 Sunday morning it was cold and a bit wet up here. The road could have been icy at that spot....we just don't know . This could happen to anyone .


Truly a sad day for the family .

Very Sad..... and unfortunate how the press spared no detail on the type of Car he was driving. As if it makes a difference.


Yeah, I know - isn't that interesting. If it had been a Prius they wouldn't have mentioned it.
