Tractor trailer crash closes I-95 Saturday

An accident involving a tractor trailer rollover closed I-95 and sent one person to the hospital Saturday, Sept. 22, at 5:55 a.m.

Closures continue Saturday morning as State Police investigate the crash, which occurred in Westport.

Fairfield Assistant Fire Chief Scott Bisson said departments from Fairfield and Westport responded to a report of a multiple vehicle accident I-95 southbound between exits 19 and 18.

Rescuers found two people trapped inside a SUV and a tractor trailer partially rolled over on the highway.

Personnel from both departments worked to extricate the victims. One of them was transported to Bridgeport Hospital, Bisson said.

I-95 was completely closed for about 1 hour and there will be alternating closures during the investigation and the removal of the tractor trailer. The Westport Fire Department remained on scene with State Police.
