One person was injured when a car carrier, box truck and SUV collided on Interstate 95 southbound between exits 17 and 18 in Westport Tuesday morning, according to the Westport Fire Department.
Fire officials said the box truck struck a Chevrolet Suburban from behind, pushing the SUV into a car carrier shortly after 8:30 a.m.
The driver of the Suburban "escaped serious injuries" and was treated at the scene, according to firefighters.
Emergency responders also worked to contain a gas leak that had sprung in the Suburban's fuel tank. Authorities notified the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection of the spill and towed all three vehicles from the scene.
Fire officials are urging drivers to leave a safe following distance on the road, especially on highways.
