East Hartford – Fiery Truck And Bus Crash On I-84

Several trucks were involved in a fiery accident in East Hartford yesterday morning.

The accident reportedly occurred at around 5:00 a.m. and involved three tractor-trailer trucks and a school bus that wasn’t carrying passengers/students at the time of the incident. Three of the vehicles were engulfed in flames when authorities arrived at the scene. All westbound lanes of I-84 between exits 55 and 56 were closed due to the accident. Two people reportedly died from the crash. Officials have yet to provide additional details about the incident pending an investigation of the accident scene.

Multi-vehicle accidents involving large trucks can be challenging to investigate. It would be difficult to identify the cause of these types of accidents. That said, if negligence, DUI or product/vehicle defects can be established, aggrieved parties (or their families, in this case) can file for compensation/damage claims with the help of expert legal counsel.
