Gardner, who had been traveling eastbound, lost control of the vehicle, which veered into the westbound lane, collided with the pillar and came to rest on the lawn of 945 Bantam Road, police said.

He was transported by ambulance to Charlotte Hungerford Hospital in Torrington, then transferred to Hartford Hospital, where he was pronounced dead Wednesday at 2:05 a.m., police said.

Gardner earned his adult education diploma from New Milford High School in 2007.
