Connecticut car accidents: 5 people hurt in Interstate 91 crash

A section of Interstate 91 northbound in Connecticut was closed for several hours following a wreck involving two vehicles. Car accidents on the interstate are often known for their severity, and this accident is a prime example. In total, five people were injured in the collision and then transported to area hospitals for care.

This particular accident occurred in the early morning hours on Valentine's Day. According to a report, a small car had become disabled in the center lane and was struck from behind by an SUV. A passenger in the disabled car and all of the occupants of the SUV were injured in the wreck. All of those who suffered injuries were transported to different hospitals located between Hartford and New Haven.

Police have yet to report an official cause for this accident. Weather is not believed to have been a factor. A portion of the interstate was closed for six hours in order for investigators and cleanup crews to work the scene. Police are asking any witnesses to the accident to please come forward and share their accounts of the event.

The exact injuries suffered in this crash were unspecified, but they were reported to be serious. While fault is unclear in the reports released, those injured in this collision may be able to pursue personal injury claims in Connecticut civil court against the individual deemed responsible. Car accidents, like this one, that result in serious injuries often leave victims physically, emotionally and financially struggling. Taking legal action can help in recouping financial losses and non-economic damages -- if handled successfully -- and allow victims the ability to focus on their recoveries and move forward with their lives.
