Old Saybrook – Highway Shutdown After Crash
A major crash closes both sides of the highway in Old Saybrook yesterday afternoon.
The accident occurred a few minutes before 3:00 p.m. in I-95 crossing Old Saybrook, between exits 66 and 67. Officials quickly arrived at the scene and closed both sides of I-95 for approximately an hour. Injuries were reported, and LifeStar was called in to assist those involved. The crash caused heavy delays in the area, though authorities were able to fully reopen the highway by 4:00 p.m. Additional information and the identities of those involved will be disclosed by officials when available.
Because of accessibility issues, some highway/interstate accidents necessitate the assistance of LifeStar personnel and equipment. In these instances, and after tending to people’s injuries, authorities promptly focus on determining the causes of these accidents. This is noteworthy because if negligence, DUI or reckless behavior are established, injured parties can file for damages/compensation.
