Stratford – Highway Vehicle Accident
A vehicle accident closed a section of the highway in Stratford yesterday.
At around 4:58 p.m., emergency crews responded to the northbound lanes of Route 15 after receiving reports of a crash in the area. According to responders, an unspecified number of vehicles was involved in an accident about a quarter of a mile before Exit 54 (Milford Connector) that resulted in injuries. Medical personnel quickly attended to everyone affected by the incident, while other crews started cleanup operations. All lanes were cleared less than an hour later. Officials have yet to identify anyone involved in the crash pending an investigation. Updates will be provided as soon as they become available.
Promptly clearing accident sites on highways is always an important objective for emergency responders. They do this without compromising on another important goal: identifying crash causes accurately. This point is particularly important to us motorists because if ever we are injured in similar situations, establishing accountability can help us seek justice and, under ideal circumstances, file for compensation/damages.
