Driver injured in collision with tractor trailer on Berlin Turnpike 



BERLIN — One person suffered reported non-life threatening injuries when a tractor trailer and sedan collided on the Berlin Turnpike early Thursday morning.

The crash, which occurred about 6:35 a.m., temporarily closed a section of the road.

According to Deputy Police Chief Christopher Ciuci, the tractor trailer was pulling out of the driveway of Best Western, 2253 Berlin Turnpike, and attempting to turn left to head south.  As it did so, the sedan collided with the trailer.

The northbound lanes were closed between Toll Gate Road and Orchard Road until approximately 8:30 a.m.

 Ciuci said the driver of the sedan was transported to Hartford Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the tractor trailer was cited for an improper turn.
