Plainville – Rush-Hour Highway Accident

Authorities responded to a highway accident in Plainville late yesterday afternoon.

At approximately 5:48 p.m., emergency crews arrived on Route 72 West, about a quarter of a mile before Exit 1 (Route 177), and discovered an accident involving an unspecified number of vehicles and motorists. The scene was immediately cordoned off and paramedics were requested on-site to help involved parties. Entrapment was not reported, and road crews were able to clear the site less than an hour later. Officials are currently investigating the incident and should release more info in due time.

As required by authorities, EMS teams are frequently dispatched to highway crash sites regardless of reported severity. They have to be prepared for worst-case scenarios — the safety of motorists is their priority. Highway crashes typically result in significant damage and injuries, so motorists exhibiting negligent behavior should be stopped from driving and brought to justice. Under appropriate circumstances, damage claims can also be filed by injured parties against these individuals. Legal experts can help victims or their families understand what their options can be in these situations.
