WTIC91Crash

WINDSOR, Conn. (WGGB/AP) — A motorist slammed through a concrete barrier, falling from an overpass above Interstate 91 in Windsor and leaving him hospitalized in critical condition.

Police say the driver of a Jeep Grand Cherokee came from the high-occupancy vehicle lane and went through an intersection before crashing through the barrier on Tuesday morning.

The vehicle caught fire as it fell onto a highway median below the overpass.

An accident reconstruction team said the bridge is structurally sound.

Conn. State Police say that the HOV lane southbound remains closed.

    You all should be ashamed of yourselves – making a mockery out of something terrible – I personally saw this crash and said a prayer for those involved- go rant political elsewhere – it’s sad that you all do not know better-

    None taken but perhaps you should have considered that a human being is more than likely dead if not then seriously injured and considered their family or friends – and not made the ridiculous comments to begin with – it is offensive

    I guess the fact that I was there and it really was horrifying has made me over sensitive to the issue – no hard feelings I just hoped people might be more respectful …

    Nathan – I’m sorry that this is the way you look at things – apparently you are missing the message here – it is not appropriate – and I will agree to disagree with you -

    Donald – I just needed to change the tone of this discussion and I appreciate your ability to understand the message I hoped to convey – you all drive safe

    Not putting you down just asking you not to make a joke of it.

    I did feel that the comments were disrespectful … I still do – I was not amused in the slightest – however I do not feel like bantering with you – since the focus was protecting our constitutional rights I will employ my 1st amendment rights when I say that I thought the comments lacked taste and class- and I felt strongly enough about it to give my own opinion – whether you agree or disagree is trivial as both of our lives will go on either way… I apologize if you felt you were being attacked – but you aren’t the victim here.

    I heard that the victim of this accident passed away- my condolences to his family and friends…
