Driver Survives When Pickup Truck Goes Over Guardrail

Connecticut (November 29, 2011) A pickup truck careened off I-95 north near Greenwich after being rear-ended. According to the Connecticut State Police, the accident occurred at 1:18 p.m. on Interstate 95 between Exit 2-Delavan Avenue and Exit 3-Arch Street, causing traffic to back up into New York.

A vehicle rear-ended a pickup truck, causing the pickup to go off the right side of the road.  The pickup truck went airborne over the metal guardrail, down an embankment, and struck a tree.

No serious injuries have been reported.

The driver of the striking vehicle was cited by state police.

The right and center lanes were closed for over an hour-and-a-half as crews worked to remove the pickup from the bottom of the embankment.  The pickup truck then had to be lifted over the guardrail and was towed from the scene.

All lanes were re-opened by 2:45 p.m. Residual delays remained in the area.

The Connecticut State Police have not released the names of the drivers.

Comments are closed.
