    Emergency crews have been responding to crashes all day, some of which caused injuries and closed down roads.

    Lt. Paul Vance, of Connecticut State Police, said troopers have responded to around 100 crashes. None are reported as serious. 

    A tractor-trailer was on its side on Interstate 84 eastbound in Southington for hours on Friday.

    A crash has also closed Interstate 95 South in Guilford between exits 56 and 57.

    One person was transported to the Bridgeport Hospital Trauma after a crash at 11 a.m. on North Street and Woodruff Road. Officials from the Milford Fire and Rescue Department said there was a single-car crash with one occupant and severe trauma.

    Fire department paramedics began advanced life support in the vehicle while other members used the Hurst Rescue tools to free the entrapped occupant. The person was freed from the vehicle at 11:23 a.m. and an ambulance transported the person.

    AAA's roadside rescue crew responded to 245 calls for emergency road service between midnight and 11 a.m. alone.
