Westport – Multi-Vehicle Highway Crash
Several vehicles figured in a crash in Westport last Sunday.
Authorities dispatched emergency teams to Route 15 South and discovered eight vehicles that collided between Exits 44 and 42. Responders were forced to close down the roadway temporarily as paramedics tended to all injured motorists. At least two people were hospitalized following the crash. The area has since been cleared of all obstructions, and officials are still investigating the incident. This story will be updated as authorities release more info.
Similar incidents can be classified as “chain-reaction” crashes and are typically caused by just one or two culprit vehicles or drivers. It’s particularly important to determine if DUI or negligence played a part in these scenarios as that can help authorities improve road safety for everyone. That said, motorists injured due to the negligent behavior of other people would benefit from consulting legal experts. There are options we can pursue in these situations that can, hopefully, help us find closure.
