More Snow Led to School Delays Problems on Roads

People along Church Street in New Haven dealing with another day of cold and snow on Tuesday.

Snow is over in Western Connecticut but it continues to fall in Eastern Connecticut, adding more snow to the already-large snow piles across the state. That led to school delays on Tuesday morning as well as problems on the roads across the state.

Early Tuesday morning, there was a double tractor-trailer crash on Interstate 95 in Westport, but the most tragic crash was a fatal accident on Route 66 in Hebron that claimed one life.

Late Tuesday morning, there were several problems on Interstate 395 in Griswold, Norwich and Plainfield.

In all, the storm brought between a coating and an inch to northern Connecticut and one to three inches of snow to the southern half of the state.
