MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– A portion of I-95 southbound in Milford was closed briefly after a car crashed into a DOT crash truck Wednesday morning.
State police tell News 8 that a car crashed into a state Department of Transportation crash truck at a DOT construction site on I-95 southbound between exits 35 and 34. The left and center lanes were closed for a short time but have since been reopened and the accident has been cleared.
Police say a Nissan Maxima, driven by 24-year-old Daquan Morris of Bridgeport, struck the rear of the crash truck as it attempted to change lanes. The crash truck was in an active construction zone and was being used to direct traffic with a rear sign board arrow that alerted drivers to change lanes.
Troopers say there were minor injuries in the accident. Both vehicles sustained moderate damage.
According to authorities, Morris was driving with a suspended license. He is being charged with operating under suspension, failure to move over and reckless driving.
Morris is scheduled to appear in Milford Superior Court on November 17.
