Cromwell

CROMWELL, Conn. (WTNH) — Drivers on Route 9 in Cromwell had a slower than normal commute Friday morning, after a crash blocked a lane during the morning commute hours.

Traffic was snarled on Route 9 in the southbound lane before exit 20, close to the Route 372 and Interstate 91 exchange.

Authorities say the left lane was closed for a car versus tractor trailer crash.

Authorities say they couldn’t confirm if anyone got hurt, but they did say that one of the drivers was being evaluated.

This incident is still under investigation by Connecticut State Police.
