Westport – Interstate Accident
At around 6:20 p.m. reports came in of a highway accident in Westport yesterday.
The crash occurred on the southbound side of I-95 crossing Westport, less than 400 feet past exit 17 (off-ramp to Saugatuck Avenue/Route 33). Minor injuries have been reported, and local crews have arrived to attend to everyone involved in the accident. The area was cleared by emergency crews less than half an hour later. Other details have yet to be provided by officials pending an investigation. More information will be released when they become available.
The efficiency that emergency crews exhibit when processing/clearing highway accident scenes is noteworthy. That said, establishing liability is also an important goal for authorities as it opens up various legal avenues that aggrieved parties can explore, particularly when filing for damages/compensation.
