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.
