MILFORD — A Derby man has died Monday following a parking lot incident at the Connecticut Post Mall.

According to Milford police, officers responded to a call of a motor vehicle accident in the mall’s parking lot around 11:49 a.m. The traffic division concluded that a single vehicle was traveling east in the lot at a slow speed when it veered to the right before it struck a curb and a tree in the lot.

The driver, later identified as John B. Kane, 56, of Derby, was reportedly unresponsive at the scene. A witness and Milford police officers performed CPR until the Milford Fire Department arrived and brought Kane to Milford Hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.

The investigation remains open pending results from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
