East Hartford – Highway Crash

A crash occurred on the highway in East Hartford yesterday morning.

Fire and EMS teams were dispatched to the westbound lanes of I-84 after receiving reports of a crash in the area. According to responders, the accident occurred between Exits 56 and 55 and have resulted in moderate delays in the area. Injuries were reported, though officials have yet to specify the number of vehicles and motorists involved in the incident. The crash site has since been cleared, and everyone affected has since been tended to by emergency personnel. The crash is currently under investigation, and authorities will release updates when appropriate.

Accidents on major thoroughfares such as I-84 and I-95 almost always result in delays, and authorities are required to process and clear these crash sites as quickly as possible. Of course, this is done while still allowing enough time for crash investigators to do their work, as establishing liability is imperative. Officials can use data collected from these investigations to bring culprits to justice, while victims can use these to pursue legal options that can help them find closure.

East Hartford – Truckers In Crash Identified

The two drivers who were killed in the fiery I-84 crash last Monday morning have now been identified.

The crash involved a school bus and several tractor-trailers. The bus did not have any passengers. The incident occurred on I-84 crossing East Hartford and caused a massive closure of the highway. According to investigators, 52-year-old Norman Bliss of Etters, Pa. was driving his truck when he was unable to slow down for traffic in front of him. His vehicle hit a school bus driven by 67-year-old Verlean Douglas of Winsor, which then hit another truck, pushing it to hit a fourth vehicle. The truck driven by Bliss caught fire that spread to all the vehicles in the pile. Both Bliss and Douglas died in the accident, while the two other drivers were not hurt. Officials are still investigating the accident.

Additional details have surfaced regarding this accident. Eventually, authorities will be able to determine with certainty the cause of this incident. It’s important to determine this because injuries or fatalities caused by DUI, negligence or reckless driving can be grounds for a damage/compensation claim.
