Milford police responded to a report of a one car accident on the Route 101 bypass, just west of Osgood Road to find a 2001 Ford pickup truck rolled over.
The truck, driven by Shane S. Gaspar, 18, of Milford, was headed west and lost control and rolled over, coming to rest just off the westbound side of Route 101.
A juvenile passenger and Gaspar were thrown from the vehicle upon impact.
