Branford – Highway Vehicle Accident
A serious accident blocked a portion of the interstate in Branford yesterday.
Authorities received reports of the crash at around 4:39 p.m. and immediately dispatched fire and EMS crews to the southbound side of I-95, less than a mile before Exit 55 (Route 1/East Main Street). According to responders, a still unspecified number of vehicles was involved in a serious crash that resulted in injuries. Medical crews quickly tended to motorists affected by the incident, while other personnel blocked a portion of the highway to facilitate cleanup operations. The site was cleared about an hour later. Officials have now started an investigation into the cause of the crash. Updates will be provided as they become available.
Highway accidents need to be cleared quickly to avoid delays and other collateral effects. That said, authorities will always focus on identifying the causes of these incidents as this will help them improve highway safety for everyone. This will also help victims of these unfortunate events to find closure with guidance from their legal counsel.
