2 Connecticut drivers die in fatal crash on I-95

A multi-car accident near the Connecticut border on Interstate 95 in Rye, has resulted in the death of two of the vehicle's drivers. The accident, which occurred around 1:30 p.m. on Feb. 2, 2015, appeared to be from inclement weather conditions that caused hazardous driving conditions in the area.

According to state police, a 22-year-old female from Hamden, who was driving a Lexus sedan and a 61-year-old man from Hartford, who was driving an airport shuttle van, had initially pulled over to the side of the road after the two were involved in a minor traffic accident. The two were inspecting the damage to their vehicles as a state trooper pulled up. Police state that is when a 46-year-old man driving a Dodge Caravan reportedly lost control of his vehicle after encountering ice on the highway.

Officials state that the Dodge Caravan went off the side of the road where it hit both drivers, with the impact throwing them both into the back of the van. The man's vehicle then went back onto the road, hitting a bus. The bus then went into another vehicle, which reportedly caused minor damage.

The driver of the Dodge Caravan was transported to the Westchester Medical Center in Vahalla, where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries. Both the 22-year-old female and 61-year-old male were pronounced dead at the scene.

An investigation into the accident is still ongoing. No tickets have been issued, although investigators are looking into whether the driver of the Dodge Caravan may have been going too fast for the icy road conditions.

Individuals who have sustained injuries due to a car accident may find it beneficial to speak with an experienced Connecticut personal injury attorney.
