Just as snow started to collect on the roads late Saturday night, Norwalk fire officials say, the department responded to five separate accidents on Interstate 95 and the Route 7 connector.
Single cars spun out and became disabled on guardrails, concrete barriers “or disabled in the travel lanes facing the wrong way,” according to a statement from Norwalk Fire Department Deputy Chief Edward Prescott.
“Fire apparatus blocked lanes to protect the accident scenes while state troopers investigated and to protect cars that were disabled in the travel lanes,” Prescott said. “Once the cars were towed from the highway, all the travel lanes were opened.”
Additionally, one motor vehicle slid through the intersection at Patrick and Wolfpit Avenues (see map), leaving the driver with minor injuries. The motorist was transported to Norwalk Hospital while emergency responders “worked to contain the vehicles fluids from entering the storm drains,” Prescott said.
