WALLINGFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — The driver of a tractor-trailer who caused a crash on I-91 in Wallingford Wednesday night is accused of driving drunk with a juvenile in the cab.
Police charged 46-year-old Dennis Goncalves Medeiros with risk of injury to a child, reckless endangerment in the first degree, operating under the influence, and failure to maintain lane.
The highway was closed between Exits 12 and 13 for about two hours but has since reopened.
The North Haven Fire Department was on scene and said all northbound lanes were shut down at one point to remove debris in the roadway. Several large pieces of steel weighing thousands of pounds each were on the roadway, and heavy machinery was needed to remove them from the highway.
No one was injured.
