Waterbury – Rush-Hour Highway Crash
A vehicle accident blocked a portion of the highway in Waterbury late yesterday afternoon.
The incident was reported to authorities at approximately 5:36 p.m. and occurred on the southbound lanes of Route 8, about a quarter of a mile past Exit 30 (Washington Avenue). Authorities have yet to specify the number of vehicles and motorists affected by the crash, but injuries were reported and road crews had to cordon off a section of the highway to allow responders to tend to people at the crash site. All lanes were eventually cleared of all obstructions just 40 minutes later. The incident is currently under investigation. Officials have yet to identify anyone and will do so, as well as provide other details, when appropriate.
Officials are always prepared to deal with most road incidents, thus the need to follow established protocols when processing crash sites. Blocking off these high-risk areas will allow responders to safely assist motorists injured in various incidents, as well as allow investigators to collect evidence if necessary. In all cases, though, establishing liability and bringing responsible parties to justice are the primary objectives. These will have the secondary benefit of allowing injured/aggrieved parties to file for damages if deemed appropriate by legal experts.
