Two Injured in Box Truck Crash on I-95S in East Haven, CT

East Haven, CT — July 16, 2022, two people in a box truck were injured after the vehicle crashed into a concrete highway divider on I-95 in East Haven.

According to reports the incident happened just after 6:00 p.m. on I-95 South between exits 51 and 52. Preliminary investigation suggests only that a box truck was traveling south on the highway when the driver lost control for unknown reasons. The truck swerved and crashed into a highway divider, causing its two occupants to become trapped.

Firefighters rescued the victims using hydraulic tools. Both were transported to an area hospital for treatment of unknown injuries.

The investigation continues. No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Box Truck Accident on I-95 in East Haven

Reports don't really say why this crash happened the way it did. It's one thing to read that a truck hit the divider, but it's another entirely to understand the reason for that. How did the driver lose control? Were they distracted? Did they fall asleep? Did they have some kind of medical episode? Was the truck in good condition, or did something in it fail? Did it blow a tire? What were weather and traffic like in the area? Was there debris or water in the road? Additionally, why was the passenger in the truck at the time? Were they a coworker, or just someone along for the ride?

Questions like those aren't about complicating things or making any accusations. It's just important to investigate the possible variables--mostly to be sure the crash's facts are known, but also because those facts are usually needed to get people the help they deserve. That includes finding out why the passenger was there, as their options for getting assistance may differ depending on the answer.

The best way to make sure all those lingering questions are addressed is with a careful and thorough investigation. Unfortunately, that often takes more effort than police invest before drawing conclusions and moving on. That's why I typically suggest getting independent investigators with the time, tools, and training to look again. With the evidence they find, victims and families whose lives are affected by these accidents are often able to get their lives back on track.
