An accident on I-95 in Milford, Ct. stopped traffic and sent several drivers to the hospital. According to Connecticut state troopers the accident occurred between exits 40 and 41. One tractor trailer was stopped on the interstate because of traffic. The truck behind it, a tanker-truck carrying liquid latex, was stopped behind the first truck when a third large truck failed to stop and rear-ended the tanker. This caused a chain reaction that damaged all three trucks.
According to reports some of the liquid latex from the second truck spilled onto the roadway when the tanker rolled over. Though only a small amount of the liquid was spilled the slippery nature of the latex had to be carefully removed. In addition to the latex the fuel tanks of the third truck ruptured. Firefighters from Milford had to spray foam onto the fuel to ensure that it did not ignite.
Though none of the drivers were seriously injured two of them were taken to Yale-New Haven hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries related to the accident.
The staff and attorneys at Glass, Lebovitz, Kasheta & Bren hope that the injured drivers recover fully and quickly from their injuries.
