Norwalk – Highway Crash Update
Authorities have released more info regarding last Tuesday’s highway crash in Norwalk.
Five vehicles figured in an accident on the northbound lanes of Merritt Parkway, between Exits 40 and 41. The incident was reported by officials as a chain-reaction crash that resulted in serious injuries. Two motorists were trapped inside one of the vehicles and had to be extricated by responding firefighters. The female driver and male passenger were then transported to Norwalk Hospital for treatment. The drivers of the other crashed vehicles were not seriously hurt. The incident was first reported a few minutes before 4:00 p.m. and the roadway was cleared of obstructions by 5:15 p.m. The crash is currently under investigation.

Chain-reaction incidents frequently occur in heavy-traffic areas and can result in serious injuries to motorists. Lead (frontmost) vehicles are typically assumed to cause these collisions, but that’s not always the case. Authorities will always explore all possibilities so that liability can be accurately established. This will allow culprits to be brought to justice and, under appropriate circumstances, enable injured parties to pursue legal avenues against those responsible for these unfortunate events.
