Weston man killed in I-95 crash


WESTPORT

Norwalk Hour Staff Writer


State police have identified Lawrence Simonoff, 35, of Weston, as the driver killed Monday in an accident on Interstate 95 in Westport.  Simonoff was traveling northbound in the left lane near exit 17 at about 10:40 a.m. when his car was sideswiped by a car from the center lane, according to state police.  The wet surface and force of the impact sent both vehicles spinning out of control.  Simonoff, driving a 2005 Acura TSX, crashed front-first into the median, while the second driver veered right into the guardrail, and that car was rear-ended by a third car, state police said.  Simonoff's car was then struck on the driver's side by an 18-wheeled tractor trailer, police said.  Fire departments from Westport and Norwalk responded on scene and used hydraulic tools to extricate Simonoff from his vehicle, said Andrew Kingsbury, assistant chief with the Westport Fire Department.  Paramedics rushed Simonoff to Norwalk Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, state police said.  The driver of the tractor trailer complained of an arm injury and was also transported to the hospital, according to police.  A dispatcher with the trucking company, NKC Transportation, said the company was told by police it was not at fault in the accident and its driver wasn't ticketed.  Interstate 95 northbound remained closed for nearly three hours Monday afternoon while state police investigated the accident.  State police have not indicated if any charges will be filed.
