Bridgeport – Evening Highway Crash
State and local officials responded to a highway crash in Bridgeport yesterday evening.
At around 7:50 p.m., fire and EMS crews were dispatched to the northbound lanes of I-95 to assist motorists involved in a crash between Exits 27 and 28. Injuries were reported, and medical personnel quickly attended to everyone affected by the crash. The incident forced the closure of two right lanes to facilitate an investigation into its cause. Officials have yet to specify the number of vehicles and motorists involved in the incident and will do so when appropriate. This post will be updated once more information becomes available.
Authorities handling this case immediately advised motorists near the crash scene to look for alternate routes. This highlights the need for officials to process and clear accident sites as quickly as possible: to eliminate, or at least reduce, collateral effects such as heavy delays and the higher risk of additional accidents. Of course, identifying the causes of these incidents will always be a priority for law enforcement, and this can benefit aggrieved parties by allowing them certain legal options they can explore to help them find closure after these unfortunate events.
