LifeStar takes man to hospital after rollover on I-91


MERIDEN — A pickup truck rolled over on Interstate 91 north at about 4:10 p.m. Friday afternoon, sending one man to the hospital via LifeStar. All three highway lanes were closed until about 5 p.m.

Warren Carlone, 40, of East Hampton, was taken to Hartford Hospital after being extricated from the truck, which was flat on its roof in a ditch in the vicinity of the Meriden Humane Society, just north of the Murdock Avenue overpass between exits 15 and 16.

Meriden Assistant Fire Chief Robert Burdick said Carlone was conscious upon being removed from the truck. His injuries were later determined to be non-life threatening.

Carlone was traveling in the center lane when he lost control of the vehicle and veered off the road, causing it to flip over, according to a state police report.

Firefighters had to remove the passenger side door to extricate Carlone. It took over 30 minutes to get him out of the truck, after which he was transported to the hospital by the LifeStar helicopter, which had to land in the middle of the highway.

State police attended to the scene after the Carlone was taken from the site. The incident remains under investigation.
