Cheshire – Closure After Crash
Cheshire officials closed a portion of the highway due to a vehicle crash yesterday afternoon.
Officials were alerted to the accident at around 3:19 p.m. and dispatched fire and EMS crews to the eastbound side of I-84 at Exit 26 (Route 70/Waterbury Road). An unspecified number of vehicles crashed in the area, resulting in injuries. Responders cordoned off a section of the highway to allow medical personnel and investigators to perform their duties, after which road crews started cleanup operations. It took officials less than an hour to clear all lanes of the highway. They have yet to identify anyone involved in the incident as it’s still under investigation. This post will be updated as soon as they release more details.
In some cases, officials temporarily withhold information about various road accidents if that can help them investigate or process these incidents. That said, all relevant data will eventually be released as it will benefit everyone. Authorities can use this data to improve road safety, while motorists, particularly those injured in accidents, can use this to explore various options that can help them find closure.
