OXFORD, Conn. (WTNH) -- Police are investigating a bad wreck in Oxford that sent five people to the hospital, including two kids.
The accident happened on Quaker Farms Road, just before 12:30 Wednesday afternoon.
Police say the driver of the flat bed truck was traveling northbound on route 188, when he lost control, crossing into the southbound lane striking a Subaru.
"It's a very serious injury accident at this point. A very serious injury accident and we are doing a total investigation," said Sgt. Daniel Semosky, a state trooper.
Two people were injured in the flat bed truck, along with a mother and two children in the Subaru.
Although police did not say whether speed was a factor, residents say this accident is a reminder that drivers need to slow down on Quaker Farms Road.
"I think people just have to be really aware of how fast they are going," said Karin Burke, Oxford resident.
"People have to be more cautious and careful because things like this can happen at any time, and just get up, give a thought when you are going too fast," said Peter Badeau, Oxford resident.
Some Oxford parents say speed is always an issue along this road.
"The state police, they should really sit out sometimes at the parks and schools and use a speed trap," said Stephen Dillon, Oxford resident.
"Maybe a couple speed bumps down Hawkins might help. I note that emails go out at the beginning of every season just a reminder drive slow, there are kids that live on the road," said Jennifer Badeau, Oxford resident.
