NEW HAVEN — While stopped on the highway due to a prior incident, a city firefighter was killed in a five-car crash on Interstate 91 Wednesday night, according to Connecticut State Police.
Police identified the man as 27-year-old New Haven resident Thomas Mieles, a Wilbur Cross High School graduate. Mieles "fulfilled his dream" of becoming a New Haven firefighter when he joined the department on Jan. 12, Chief John Alston said in a statement Thursday morning.
