Danbury Fire Department

(WTNH)– Slick roads led to several accidents throughout the state during the Monday morning commute.

I-91 was closed in Cromwell between exits 20-21 due to several crashes. However, there were no injures reported.

The highway has since been reopened but State Police urge drivers to reduce speed and use caution in the area.

Also on I-91, a jack-knifed tractor trailer blocked the highway on the southbound side near exit 29 in Hartford.

In Danbury, there was a tractor trailer rollover on I-84 westbound at exit 3. The Danbury Fire Department says the driver had to be extricated and taken to Danbury Hospital for injuries.

The right lane has since reopened to traffic but delays should be expected in the area.

Additionally on I-84 westbound, there were heavy delays in Southington after a crash near exits 32 and 33.

Below are more crashes that were reported throughout the morning.
