Southington – Crash On The Highway
An accident was reported on I-84 in Southington yesterday afternoon.
State and local officials were alerted to a crash on the eastbound lanes of I-84 and immediately sent emergency crews to the area. According to reports, the incident occurred about half a mile past Exit 31 and resulted in injuries. No word yet on the number of vehicles and motorists affected by the incident, though firefighters and paramedics were requested. To process the accident site safely, road crews blocked off a portion of the highway — all lanes were cleared about half an hour later. The crash is still under investigation, and authorities will release more information when appropriate.
Authorities will always respond to accident reports appropriately, and that means preparing for worst-case scenarios. This is noteworthy because as motorists, it’s good to know that officials have our backs when it comes to road safety. These things said, we also need to be aware of our rights and options if ever we are involved in any accident. In certain cases, injuries sustained can allow us to seek damages, particularly when culprits are suspected to exhibit reckless or negligent behavior.
