New Haven – Rollover Highway Accident
A truck overturned on the highway in New Haven yesterday afternoon.
Authorities responded to I-91 South, between Exits 3 and 2, after calls came in of an overturned tractor-trailer in the area. The incident occurred shortly before 1:00 p.m. and blocked two right lanes of the interstate. Multiple fire and EMS teams were requested on-site to process the crash scene and assist a still-unspecified number of motorists involved in the accident. The crash resulted in heavy delays stretching back several miles. Road crews were eventually able to clear the site at approximately 5:00 p.m. The incident is currently under investigation. More details will follow.
Rollover accidents involving large vehicles still occur frequently in crash-prone areas across the state. Authorities are always prepared to respond to these incidents and are also well-equipped to investigate the causes of these crashes. The second point is important because taking negligent drivers off the road will help improve road safety for everyone. That said, we always have the option of consulting legal experts if ever we or our loved ones are involved in similar situations.
