Greenwich – Highway Tractor-Trailer Crash
Greenwich motorists experienced heavy delays following a truck crash yesterday morning.
At around 11:20 a.m., a tractor-trailer was traveling on the southbound side of I-95 when it collided with another vehicle near Exit 4 (Indian Field Road). The driver of the car was injured in the accident and was immediately taken to the hospital for treatment. The incident forced the truck into the center divider of the highway where it rolled over to its side. A significant amount of diesel fuel was spilled onto the roadway, forcing responders to cordon off the area and ask for support from cleanup crews. The accident resulted in massive delays that also affected local streets in the area. The crash is currently under investigation. Updates will be provided as soon as authorities release more information.
This case highlights the diligence accident responders will always exhibit when dealing with any road incident. Crash sites have to be processed and cleared as quickly as possible to minimize collateral effects like, in this case, heavy delays. Of course, the safety of all motorists will always be their first priority, followed by the accurate identification of accident causes. The second point is noteworthy because motorists injured in similar scenarios may have the option of filing for damages under appropriate circumstances.
