Southbury – Multi-Vehicle Highway Crash Update
Authorities have just released updates regarding last Tuesday’s highway crash in Southbury.
The incident occurred on the westbound side of I-84, near Exit 14. According to updates released by officials yesterday, 16-year-old Garrett Sheehan exhibited reckless driving that led to the multiple-vehicle accident. Sheehan lost control of his 2007 BMW and hit a 2019 Chevrolet Impala. That vehicle then hit a 2016 Chevrolet Sonic, forcing it to spin out and crash into a guardrail before hitting a 2018 RAM Promaster. The pickup truck rolled over due to that final collision. The crash resulted in multiple injuries, and several motorists were taken to various area hospitals for treatment. Sheehan is scheduled to appear in court to face misdemeanor charges of reckless driving and violating passenger restrictions.
