North Haven – Truck Rolls Over On Highway Ramp
A truck rolls over on route to I-91 in North Haven yesterday afternoon.
Authorities were forced to close the southbound on-ramp to I-91 from Route 40 (Mt. Carmel Connector) after arriving at the scene of an overturned semi. Fire and EMS crews were quickly dispatched to the area after officials received reports of the crash at approximately 4:25 p.m. Based on available information, the tractor-trailer lost control and crashed, resulting in injuries to a still-unspecified number of motorists. The on-ramp was blocked well into the night, and state authorities advised motorists to avoid the area. No word yet on whether or not other vehicles were involved in the incident. Updates will be provided as soon as officials release more information.
Truck accidents, particularly involving tractor-trailers, can cause road closures and other collateral effects that necessitate close coordination between state and local officials to process, investigate and clear as quickly as possible. With that in mind, preventing these incidents from happening require identifying crash culprits/causes and addressing them effectively. This will not only help authorities to improve road safety for everyone but also allow crash victims certain legal options they can pursue to help them find closure.
