Southington – Multi-Vehicle Crash Causing Several Injuries
A multi-vehicle crash occurred on Interstate 84 East crossing Southington earlier today. Several people were reportedly brought to the hospital following the accident.
The Southington Fire Department reported the incident on their Twitter and Facebook pages. According to them, the accident occurred between exits 28 and 30 and included six patients. Three patients were immediately brought to the hospital, while the remaining three patients refused treatment. One patient was trapped inside one of the cars, and it took 16 minutes for responders to extricate the person. The Southington Fire Department was assisted by support vehicles from Plainville and Cheshire. The crash caused heavy delays in the area.
Even with today’s technologies, particularly when it comes to automobile safety features, incidents like this can still result in serious injuries to drivers and passengers. For years, car manufacturers have touted various safety features that modern automobiles have equipped as standard, including robust structures that allow occupants to exit the car after any incident. And yet, in this example, authorities had to extricate the occupant of the vehicle. We need to be aware of these types of incidents so that we know what our options are when it happens to us.
