It Was a Slow Commute on a Snowy Monday

It was a slow commute for people who needed to drive on snow-covered roads on Monday morning.

There were several crashes, including a couple of tractor-trailer crashes on both sides of Interstate 84 in Tolland.

One truck that crashed was carrying frozen meat and the state Department of Consumer Protection was called to respond to the scene.

There were also delays on Interstate 95 South from Fairfield into Westport after the brakes of a tractor-trailer carrying potatoes caught fire.

The delays were back to exit 25 at the Bridgeport line. Officials from consumer protection were called out to this scene as well.

Metro-North urged commuters to allow for additional travel time and use caution when entering and exiting trains and on platforms and staircases.
