Norwalk Fire Department

Press Release

April 15, 2014

The Norwalk Fire Department responded to an early morning accident on !-95 Northbound, between exit 16 and 17, at 5:00am. The accident involved a tractor trailer truck striking another tractor trailer that was parked on the shoulder just beyond entrance 16 northbound. The tractor trailer that struck the parked trailer was carrying twenty bundles of rolled paper weighing 2,400 pounds each. The compromised trailer split open from the collision which caused the trailer to buckle under the weight of cargo and come to rest under the Strawberry Hill Avenue bridge.

Several rolls of paper weighing up to 600 pounds, that fell out of the trailer, were moved by Firefighters and State Troopers to free up a lane to get traffic moving. The highway was reduced alternately between 1 or 2 open lanes as Nat’s Towing worked to remove the trucks from the highway.

The driver of the truck that was parked suffered minor injuries and was transported to Norwalk Hospital.
