A late morning car crash in Westport, Conn. injured the drivers of the two vehicles involved. Though police have not released the cause of the accident initial reports show that Westport Fire Department, Connecticut State Police, Westport EMS and Norwalk Hospital Paramedics responded to the accident.
The crash took place on southbound Merritt Parkway between exits 41 and 40. First responders reported finding two vehicles with their airbags deployed and serious body damage. One vehicle had left the roadway and hit several small trees before coming to a stop back on the road.
EMS workers and firefighters worked to treat the injured and transport them to Norwalk Hospital. Both cars spilled fluid and clean-up took some time.
Emergency workers credit the lack of serious injuries to the use of seat belts and air bags in both vehicles. The combined use of air bags and seat belts has contributed to many thousands of reduced injuries across Connecticut and the nation.
The staff and attorneys at Glass, Lebovitz, Kasheta & Bren hope that the injured drivers are on their way to making a full and quick recovery.
