A multi-car crash in South Park has left one person dead Thursday afternoon.

According to authorities, the crash happened around 2:30 p.m. at the intersection of Simsbury Road and Fairview Road just west of Charlotte Country Day School.

The fatal crash occurred when a 75-year-old Charlotte man plowed his 2008 Acura into the rear of a BMW that was stopped at a stop sign on Simsbury Road waiting to turn right onto Fairview Road.

After hitting the BMW, the man’s Acura continued across Fairview, coming to a stop after crashing into a tree, killing him on the scene.

The woman driver of the BMW was treated at the scene of the wreck by Medics but did not need to be transported to the hospital.
