WALLINGFORD — First responders temporarily shut down the stretch of Route 5 between Northfield Road and South Elm Street early Monday evening, following two crashes that had involved four vehicles, police said.
Wallingford Police Lt. Cheryl Bradley said the crash occurred just after 5:30 p.m. Monday, near 920 S. Colony Road. The road was closed for about half an hour, Lt. Samuel Soukup said Tuesday morning. There were two separate crashes, one that involved two vehicles near Connecticut Fresh Food & Produce Market and a second, rear-end collision a short distance away near S. Elm Street, Soukup said.
Bradley said one person suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken by ambulance to Yale-New Haven Hospital. All four vehicles were towed from the scene.
The incidents are under investigation by the traffic division, Soukup said Tuesday morning.
