Westport – Truck Hits Overpass On I-95
A truck hit an interstate overpass in I-95 yesterday, causing it to roll over.
At around 12:41 p.m. yesterday, authorities responded to an accident on Interstate 95 involving a dump truck that rolled over after its hoist hit the Hillspoint Road overpass between exits 17 and 18. It was the only vehicle involved in the incident, but officials still closed two lanes of the highway to safely contain leaks coming out from the damaged truck. The scene was eventually cleared by at around 4 p.m. The driver of the vehicle sustained minor injuries and was able to exit the vehicle on his own. Respondents immediately transported him to a local hospital for evaluation and treatment. Heavy traffic was reported in the area after the accident but has since dissipated.
Authorities should be able to determine the cause of this accident promptly. In situations where drivers are not negligent, vehicle defects can be suspected. If proven to be the case, aggrieved parties can file for personal injury claims.
