New Haven – Heavy Delays After Highway Crash
A vehicle crash resulted in heavy delays in New Haven yesterday afternoon.
The incident was reported to authorities at around 1:29 p.m. and emergency crews were quickly sent to the northbound lanes of Route 15. According to officials, a two-vehicle crash blocked the entire northbound side of the highway between Exits 58 to 59 (Orange, Woodbridge, and New Haven). Road crews were able to cordon off the accident site, limiting it to the left lane after several minutes. This allowed fire and EMS crews to safety assist all motorists injured in the incident. The crash is currently under investigation. Officials have yet to disclose the identities of people involved in the accident and will do so when appropriate.
Emergency responders are required to find a balance between blocking off a sufficient area around a crash site and making sure that traffic flow remains manageable. Of course, their main priorities will always be to assist everyone involved in accidents and to accurately identify their causes. This will allow culprits to be taken off the road and enable injured parties to review their legal options.
