East Lyme – Highway Hit-And-Run Crash
A hit-and-run truck driver caused a chain-reaction crash on the highway in East Lyme early Thursday morning.
Just before 6:00 a.m., seven vehicles figured in an accident on I-95 South. A tractor-trailer suddenly veered onto the lane of another vehicle, crashing into it and causing a chain of collisions that damaged a total of seven vehicles, with some incurring disabling damage. Instead of stopping, the driver of the semi fled the area. Authorities received reports of the incident and immediately sent firefighters and paramedics to assist all affected motorists. Officials are currently investigating the crash and looking for the hit-and-run motorist. Witnesses are encouraged to contact State P0lice as soon as possible.
Chain-reaction incidents are frequently caused by only one errant driver or culprit vehicle. This type of crash can cause massive collateral damage and serious injuries, so it only makes sense that responsible individuals are immediately taken off the road and brought to justice. That said, if any of us are involved in similar scenarios, consulting legal experts can be extremely beneficial post-crash. They can evaluate our cases and guide us through the process of pursuing legal avenues that should help us find closure.
