Multi-car crash closes I-91 North in Hartford
HARTFORD – A multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 91 shut down northbound traffic between exit 27 (Brainard Road) and exit 28 (Route 15).
At least one car rolled over and came to rest with its wheels in the air. There are reports of multiple injuries, but state police at Troop H in Hartford say that none of the injuries were very serious.
The crash happened just about 10 a.m. Saturday morning, and multiple lanes were closed until 11 a.m. DOT reported that traffic was backed up over 2 miles to exit 25 at one point. All lanes were reopened by 11:30; state police say they had to wait for available tow trucks, which prolonged clearing the scene of an accident which did not have any serious injuries.
