Accident Closes Highway 168

Highways can be particularly dangerous roads as hundreds to thousands of cars travel on them every day. Caution should always be taken by drivers when they get behind the wheel, but this is especially important when traveling at high speeds and on busy roads.

On May 23, a severe traffic accident was reported at 2:20 p.m. The multi-vehicle accident occurred between Sheldon Street and Main Street. Due to the intense nature of the accident, traffic was drastically delayed and result in a backflow that extended to Grand Street.

Emergency responders arrived at the scene shortly after the incident was reported. Upon arrival, first responders examined those involved for injuries and initially reported the injuries to be non-life-threatening. An investigation is ongoing into the nature and cause of the accident, and normal traffic resumed later into the afternoon.

Injuries and Car Accidents

Vehicle accidents can cause serious injuries to victims. It is vital to your safety as well as the safety of everyone around you that you always drive cautiously and attentively. Driving recklessly can cause catastrophic injury and have devastating consequences. When drivers act negligently and put others at risk, the victims of these accidents deserve to receive the compensation and assistance they need to return to their lives.

Serious car accidents can have long-lasting detrimental impacts on victims’ lives, and at the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Glassman, we have seen these unfortunate impacts first-hand many times. As concerned members of this community, we urge drivers to always follow the rules of the road and remember how important it is to drive safely. We also know that even with the most careful drivers, accidents can happen. When these accidents occur, we are committed to helping victims recover what they are owed to cover the costs of the accident, both financially and emotionally.
