3 injured in multi-car accident on I-95

STRATFORD, Conn. (WTNH) – Three people were hospitalized for non-life threatening injuries after an accident on I-95 northbound that closed the highway for about two hours Friday afternoon.

The crash, reported about 1:20 p.m. Friday, involved a jack-knifed tractor-trailer, a service van, a pickup truck and two passenger vehicles, according to Stratford deputy fire chief Jonathan Gottfried.

Firefighters had to cut the roof and doors off one of the passenger vehicles to extricate the victims, Gottfried said. Three victims were transported to Bridgeport Hospital and three others declined treatment, he said, adding that none of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening.

The accident occurred just after the exit 30 off-ramp. The highway reopened about 3:30 p.m.
