A strange driver caused a serious accident on 1-15 near Norwalk, Ct. Early Saturday morning police were called to the scene of a public disturbance where a naked man was “yelling that he was Jesus”. When police arrived the man got into his vehicle and fled down 1-15.
Police were able to get the driver to pull over near Norwalk. However, another driver, interested in the unusual traffic stop, braked abruptly and caused a serious accident. A large truck behind him slammed on his brakes to avoid hitting the rubbernecker. This caused his truck to jackknife, hit several cars and flip.
Though you almost can’t blame the driver for stopping to stare, the fact of the matter is that he did cause a serious, injurious auto accident. It took rescue workers nearly three hours to free the truck driver from his rig. Though the driver was conscious he did suffer serious injuries and was taken to a local hospital.
Several other motorists were hurt and 1-15 between exits 14 and 16 was closed for more than five hours while crews worked to clear the scene.
The staff and attorneys at Glass, Lebovitz, Kasheta & Bren hope that the injured parties are well on their way to making a quick and complete recovery.
