Investigation Continues into Four-Car Collision on I-84
The investigation continues into the multi-car collision that injured several and left one hospitalized. According to news reports, four vehicles, including a 2018 Freightliner, were traveling Westbound on I-84 near Exit 1 in Danbury when traffic slowed in front of them.
At around 2:15 pm, the Freightliner rear-ended the 2006 Nissan Pathfinder in front of him, forcing the vehicle off the road and down a nearby embankment. The Pathfinder eventually came to a stop after colliding with a tree at the bottom of the right shoulder embankment near the Saw Mill Road exit.
After crashing into the Pathfinder, the Freightliner continued forward, slamming into another vehicle, a Volvo XC40. The impact forced the Volvo forward into a fourth and final car.
Several Injured, One Hospital
The dangerous truck accident caused several injuries and sent one person to the hospital. A 41-year-old passenger out of Mahopac, NY, in the Pathfinder reportedly sustained serious, life-threatening injuries.
The tragic four-vehicle crash shut down the Westbound lanes of I-84 for several hours. It is requested that if you have any information about the accident that occurred on Monday, November 8, 2021, at approximately 2:15 pm, you contact Trooper Albohn with the Connecticut State Police - Troop A at (203) 267-2200.
Serious Truck and Car Accidents Frequent on I-84
I-84 has become a heavily congested, dangerous highway for motorists in the Tri-state area. Truck and car accidents occur almost daily, resulting in severe injury or death.
Late last month, a 22-year-old woman was killed after attempting to flag down vehicles when her vehicle broke down on the interstate. Her car was in the left lane of Eastbound I-84 when she was struck by a Mack truck near Exit 13 in Newton.
