Wallingford – Highway Vehicle Accident
Officials responded to a rush-hour accident in Wallingford yesterday.
The incident was reported at approximately 5:27 p.m. and prompted authorities to dispatch emergency crews to the southbound lanes of Route 15. Upon arrival, responders discovered a crash involving a still-unspecified number of vehicles and motorists, blocking a portion of the roadway about a mile before Exit 66 (US-5). Road crews quickly cordoned off the scene to allow EMS personnel to assist injured motorists. The crash site was eventually cleared of all obstructions just half an hour later. Officials have not identified anyone yet and are currently investigating the incident. This post will be updated as soon as more info becomes available.
Rush-hour accidents on major thoroughfares can result in heavy delays, requiring emergency responders to process and clear these areas as quickly as possible. Having said that, the safety of motorists is their primary concern and that defines the protocols they always follow, from blocking off crash sites to collecting evidence that can help them assign liability. That final point has the added benefit of allowing parties injured in similar situations to file for damages under appropriate circumstances. It’s in these cases where consulting legal experts will make the most sense.
