Southington – Highway Accident

Interstate 84 East in Southington was reduced to one lane after an accident yesterday.

Authorities received reports of a crash on the eastbound side of I-84 crossing Southington and discovered a disabled pickup truck in the area of exit 32.

Traffic flow is now back to normal. The identities and extent of injuries sustained by those involved have yet to be disclosed by authorities pending an investigation. Updates will be provided when they become available.

Highway accidents have to be processed and cleared quickly to avoid unnecessary delays to other motorists.

Avon – Rollover Crash Victim Identified

The victim of a rollover crash in Avon last Friday evening has now been identified.

A few minutes after 7:00 p.m. last Friday, a 2002 black Dodge Durango driven by 41-year-old Steven Oulette of Bristol was traveling on Waterville Road (Route 10) when it swerved off the road into a guardrail before falling down a steep embankment.
