(July 17, 2022) —  Haddam Volunteer Fire Company responded to a reported motor vehicle accident with rollover at 5:40 a.m. on July 17, 2022 on Route 9 North between exits 9 and 10.
A vehicle crossed into the median, struck more than 80 feet of guard rail, flipped, and stopped in heavy brush. The operator was able to climb out of the vehicle through the driver’s window, which was facing upwards.

Using chainsaws, firefighters created access to the vehicle by cutting and removing several small trees.

The operator was evaluated on scene and refused additional medical treatment.

The Connecticut State Police is investigating.
