Cromwell – Highway Vehicle Accident
Authorities blocked off a portion of the highway in Cromwell following an accident yesterday afternoon.
State and local officials responded to Exit 20N (I-91) on the southbound side of Route 9 following reports of a vehicle crash in the area. According to officials, an unspecified number of vehicles was involved in a crash that resulted in injuries, prompting emergency crews to cordon off the scene. Firefighters and paramedics were requested and have since tended to motorists involved in the incident. It took longer than usual to clear the crash site due to various circumstances surrounding the accident. Initial reports came in at approximately 3:48 p.m., and it took road crews about an hour and a half to clear all lanes. The crash is still under investigation.
Officials will always process crash sites with the intention of protecting the safety of everyone involved, as well as giving investigators the opportunity to collect as much evidence as they can. Because of these and other factors, the amount of time needed to clear crash sites can vary, and is usually an indicator of the severity of a particular incident. These things said, if authorities discover reckless behavior or negligence in any of these cases, injured parties can consult legal experts to explore avenues that can help them find closure after these typically traumatic events.
