I-95 Crash Slows Traffic
The reason for the traffic tie-up on the Connecticut Turnpike mid-Thursday afternoon was a crash between a car and SUV, according to Greenwich Deputy Fire Chief Thomas Zack.
"It was originally reported as a crash with tractor trailers when it was a crash between a sedan and an SUV," Zack said. "Actually it was a van and an SUV just passed the Byram River bridge, just over New York border before Exit 2." The drivers of a tractor trailer and a box truck pulled over to assist the crash victims, Zack added.
Zack said that in order to reach the crash scene, emergency crews had to drive into Port Chester, exit I-95, then reenter the highway to head northbound to the crash which closed two lanes. The two drivers were taken to Stamford Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, according to Zack.
The SUV gas tank was breached, causing 10 to 15 gallons of gasoline and firefighters having to drain the tank, Zack also said.
