Darien police say a town resident died after the person's car went airborne, crashed through a house, hit a tree and then ran into a second house.

Police did not immediately release the victim's name Sunday, but said the person's BMW was clearly exceeding the 25 mph limit on Hollow Tree Ridge Road.

The collision occurred about 1:30 a.m. Sunday when the car went airborne, flew through the unoccupied bedroom of one house, hit a tree and went into the kitchen of the second house.

No injuries were reported in the homes, and the accident remained under investigation later Sunday. Police say the homes sustained serious structural damage, and that at least one was in danger of collapsing as they tried to remove the car.
