East Hartford – Highway Accident
Reports came in of a highway accident in East Hartford yesterday evening.
At approximately 6:00 p.m., authorities dispatched emergency crews to the westbound side of I-84 crossing East Hartford, a tenth of a mile before Exit 56 (Governor Street). A vehicle accident occurred in the area, and motorists injured were quickly attended to by EMS personnel. Officials were able to clear the site around 30 minutes later but are still investigating the cause of the crash. More details about the incident, including the identities of those involved, will be released as they become available.
Rush-hour traffic makes highway driving inherently more dangerous to motorists, so authorities will always focus on identifying the causes of these incidents to make highways safer for everyone. That said, if investigators discover reckless behavior or negligence in any of these situations, injured parties may have the option of filing for compensation/damages if their legal counsel recommends it.
