Trumbull – Vehicle Fire On The Highway
A vehicle caught fire on the highway in Trumbull yesterday evening.
State and local responders converged at Exit 53 (Main Street/Route 110) on Route 15 after receiving reports of a vehicle fire in the area. According to officials, a vehicle was fully engulfed in flames that resulted in injuries. No word yet on the number of motorists affected by the incident, but multiple fire and EMS teams were requested. Authorities had to block off a portion of the highway and advised motorists to avoid the area. All lanes have since been cleared. The incident is still under investigation, and officials will release updates when appropriate.
Vehicle fires still occur every now and then despite the relative safety touted in almost all modern vehicles. This may point to the severity of certain accidents. Otherwise, the possibility of product/vehicle defects will always be studied by investigators. Whatever the outcome of these investigations, if officials discover any form of negligence, injured parties are advised to consult legal experts to determine their options as this can be an effective way for them to find closure.
