New Haven – Heavy Delays After Highway Accident
A highway crash in New Haven last Saturday resulted in heavy delays and injuries.
Authorities dispatched emergency responders to the southbound lanes of I-95 at around 4:25 p.m. to assist motorists injured in a crash. According to officials, the accident forced the closure of three left lanes, causing massive delays between Exits 51 and 48. Road crews quickly started cleanup operations — all southbound lanes were cleared by 5:15 p.m. Authorities have yet to disclose the number of motorists and vehicles affected by the crash pending an investigation. Updates will be provided as soon as more information is released by officials.
Authorities are required to process and clear accident scenes quickly to avoid collateral effects such as, in this case, heavy delays. That said, investigating these incidents remain a priority for officials as this can help victims seek justice and find closure. Identifying culprits can also allow aggrieved parties to file for damages if their legal counsel deems it as an appropriate course of action.
