A mother and son from Monroe and a teen from Derby were identified by police Saturday as the victims of two separate, serious crashes in town Friday. The first crash happened shortly before 4 p.m. Friday in the area of 179 Roosevelt Drive. The crash catapulted a vehicle into the Housatonic River with two people still inside. Tim Willis, of the Seymour Fire Department, said the Roosevelt Drive call was a “large, complex scene with responders from many jurisdictions.” Seymour Assistant Fire Chief Chris Edwards called for additional resources to the scene quickly, Willis said, and firefighters immediately worked to reach the vehicle. “They commandeered a resident’s boat and crews entered the water in both life jackets and rescue suits,” Willis said.
