Firefighters Rescue 2 From Car Teetering off Route 15

Hamden firefighters rescued two people from a car that was teetering on a retaining wall along Route 15 early Tuesday afternoon. 

Firefighters responded to Route 15 north, near exit 61-Whitney Avenue, at 12:57 p.m. and found the vehicle hanging off the retaining wall. 

More crews came in to assist and began treating the male driver and female passenger and stabilizing the vehicle so it didn’t fall off the retaining wall.

Within 15 minutes, firefighters extricated the two people from the car and an ambulance transported them to Yale-New Haven Hospital. 

Their injuries do not appear to be life-threatening at this time, according to the Hamden Fire Department.

State police are investigating the cause of the crash.
