Fairfield – I-95 Crash Culprit Identified
Connecticut State Police have released additional details related to the highway crash last Sunday that injured several people.
28-year-old State Trooper Gregory Sawicki stopped on the breakdown lane of I-95 crossing Fairfield last Sunday to assist a disabled vehicle with two occupants. A third vehicle crashed into Sawicki’s vehicle, forcing the cruiser to hit the disabled vehicle. The two occupants of the disabled vehicle sustained minor injuries, while Sawicki injured his leg and several ribs. According to authorities, the third vehicle was being driven by an off-duty corrections officer at the time of the incident. The case is still being investigated. Video footage from Sawicki’s cruiser is currently being studied and should shed more light on the details of the crash.
Officials working on this case are studying all possible angles/causes, including negligence and DUI. This is noteworthy because if any of these factors are established, injured parties would be entitled to filing damage/compensation claims.
