Waterbury – Highway Crash
State and local officials responded to a highway crash in Waterbury yesterday afternoon.
At around 3:47 p.m., emergency responders arrived on the southbound lanes of I-84, in the area of Exit 19 (Route 8), after receiving reports of a crash in the area. According to them, an unspecified number of vehicles figured in an accident that resulted in injuries. Road crews immediately cordoned off the scene while medical personnel tended to everyone involved in the crash. Authorities were able to process and clear the site less than half an hour later, though the crash is still being investigated. The identities of motorists involved have yet to be disclosed — officials will do so when appropriate.
Processing accident sites on highways can pose risks to everyone in the area, including emergency responders. Clearing these sites as quickly as possible is always a primary objective for them. Having said that, investigators are also given ample opportunities to examine and collect evidence as identifying crash culprits can help state and local officials improve general road safety. This will also allow crash victims to file for damages in cases where their legal counsel determines that as their best option.
