WATERFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A deadly accident on a section of I-95 southbound in Waterford closed part of the highway for several hours overnight.
The crash happened after 9 p.m. Sunday in the southbound lanes between Exits 82 and 81 for the multi-vehicle crash. There was no information available about who was killed. Those southbound lanes reopened to traffic a little before 6:30 a.m.
This was the third serious accident, and second with a fatality, on I-95 in Southeastern Connecticut in less than five hours.
State police say two-year-old Dacari Robinson of Meriden was killed in Waterford Sunday when the car he was riding in was struck by another vehicle as part of a four car crash. A nine-year-old and two adults were also hurt.
Around 4:30 p.m. Sunday, 15 people were hurt when a tour bus collided with four cars between exits 71 and 70 in Old Lyme. Police say there was a lot of traffic in the area and the tour bus did not stop. That caused a chain reaction involving the other cars. Those 15 people all had minor injuries. Police are still investigating the crash.
