Workers Injured in Construction Site Crash

Police are investigating the crash that injured a driver and two water company contractors at a construction site in West Hartford on Tuesday.

The crash happened while a crew from Flow Assessment Services, a contractor working with MDC, was performing roadwork on Trout Brook Drive near Farmington Avenue on Tuesday morning.

Police said 37-year-old Ewa Pedzich, of New Britain, crossed the center line while driving northbound on Trout Brook Drive near Farmington Avenue yesterday and smashed head-on into the truck.

Two Flow Assessment workers, Justin Chamberlin and Robert Marcel, were injured in the crash. Police said one was hanging by a pulley inside a manhole and the truck was pushed into the other.

Chamberlin, Marcel and Pedzich were taken to Saint Francis Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Police said Pedzich’s car and the Flow Assessment truck were heavily damaged.
