Branford – Interstate Vehicle Accident
Authorities were alerted to a highway crash in Branford yesterday evening.
State and local officials received reports of the accident at approximately 8:27 p.m. Emergency responders were quickly dispatched to the southbound lanes of I-95 and discovered a crash about a third of a mile before Exit 56 (Leetes Island Road). Injuries were reported, but authorities have yet to specify the number of vehicles and motorists affected by the incident. EMS crews were called in to tend to those involved, while other road crews blocked off the area to facilitate an investigation of the incident. The crash site was eventually cleared of all obstructions a few minutes past 9:00 p.m. Investigators are now collecting evidence related to the crash and will release updates when appropriate.
Nighttime accidents, particularly on highways, can be challenging to process and clear — responders are risking their own safety to help motorists in need. It points to the dedication authorities have in dealing with these incidents, and this includes investigating these cases thoroughly so that culprits can be brought to justice. Another important point to take note of is the option of aggrieved/injured parties to seek damages in cases where DUI, negligence or reckless behavior have been established. Legal experts can help involved parties pursue this when appropriate.
