Chester – Weekend Highway Crash

State and local officials responded to a highway accident in Chester last Saturday.

Authorities are currently investigating a crash on Route 9 South that temporarily blocked a portion of the thoroughfare. At around 6:00 p.m. last Saturday, emergency crews were dispatched to the area following reports of an accident involving an unspecified number of vehicles and motorists. EMS teams were requested to the scene after reports of injuries came in. The road blockage lasted for several hours, giving responders enough time to assist everyone involved and investigate the crash site. Officials have yet to identify anyone and will do so, as well as provide other pertinent info, when appropriate.

Following protocol means authorities are sometimes required to block off sections of major thoroughfares, and risk major/heavy delays, with the goal of safety processing crash sites and helping affected motorists.

Plainfield – Collision With Injuries

Two vehicles were involved in a rear-end collision in Plainfield last Saturday.

Southbury – Vehicle Destroyed In Crash

A vehicle crashed and caught fire in Southbury last Sunday.

At approximately 1:40 a.m., 18-year-old Elliot James Murphy was driving a 2014 Subaru Forester north on South Britain Road (Route 172) when his vehicle suddenly veered off the proper lane and crashed into a tree.
