CHESHIRE, Conn. (WTNH) — Police activity partly closed I-84 East in Cheshire following two tractor-trailer crashes on Tuesday morning.
According to the Connecticut Department of Transportation, a jack-knifed tractor-trailer crash occurred just after 6:30 a.m. Additionally, a second crash took place around the same time between a car and a tractor-trailer.
Both wrecks closed the roadway between exits 26 and 27, and both scenes are now cleared. However, the Connecticut DOT listed that police activity is active in that area, closing the right lane of the highway.
It is unclear whether or not these incidents are related to one another.
Police stated that neither crash involved a fuel spill and minor injuries were reported.
