East Lyme – Early Morning Highway Accident
A highway accident occurred in East Lyme early yesterday morning.
The incident occurred on the northbound lanes of I-95, about half a mile before Exit 73 (Society Road). Fire and EMS crews quickly arrived at the scene and discovered a still unspecified number of vehicles involved in a crash that resulted in injuries. Medical personnel have since tended to everyone affected by the incident. The crash was first reported at approximately 6:46 a.m., and it took about an hour before road crews were able to clear the accident site. Officials are still investigating the incident and will release more information when appropriate.
Early morning/rush hour accidents tend to cause heavy delays, particularly on highways. Preventing future accidents depends on the accurate identification of crash causes/culprits so that authorities can address these factors head-on. As an additional benefit, establishing liability can also allow crash victims to file for damages in cases where negligence are discovered.
