Rainy Morning, Several Crashes

Rain caused several problems during the morning commute on Friday and Interstate 84 West in Hartford was closed for awhile after a tractor-trailer jackknifed.

Most of the state got rain this morning, including some downpours.

Rain continues to fall in some areas and pop-up showers are expected this afternoon, according to NBC Connecticut meteorologist Bob Maxon.

During the rain, there was a three-car crash on Interstate 91 South by 95 in New Haven and a two-car crash  on the Merritt Parkway Southbound by exit 42 in Westport that had traffic backed up to exit 46 in Fairfield.

There were rollover crashes on Route 315 at Quarry Road in Simsbury, on Interstate 95 North by exit 14 in Norwalk and on Interstate 84 East in Hartford.

Three adults were in the car that flipped over in Norwalk at 6:46 a.m. after hitting a rock wall and officials from the fire department had to extricate one person who was pinned in the car.

Paramedics transported the victim to Norwalk Hospital. The injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

There was also a spinout on Interstate 691 East in Meriden, at exit 8.
