Interstate 84 eastbound has reopened after closing on the Tolland/Willington line because of a crash involving a tractor trailer, according to the Department of Transportation.
State police say the highway was closed between exits 69 and 70 around 7:30 p.m. Friday after a tractor trailer rolled over onto a passenger car, but the highway has since reopened. The driver of the passenger car had to be extricated from the car. That driver was transported to Hartford Hospital via Lifestar while conscious and alert. No other details on the victim’s condition are available at this time.
Police say they are investigating reports that a wrong-way driver was involved in the crash. It is unclear at this point exactly how many vehicles were involved.
