Connecticut State Police say three people were killed in a crash due to a wrong-way driver on Interstate 95 in Old Lyme, according to a report by The Associated Press.
The accident, which happened in the evening of Dec. 11, took place in the vicinity of Exit 70. It shut the highway down at about 10 p.m. It was reopened at about 3 a.m. Wednesday, as reported.
Other reports said one or more people were trapped in their cars on the Baldwin Bridge, which spans Old Saybrook into Old Lyme over the Connecticut River. Southbound lanes between exits 69 and 70 were closed for many hours.
The driver, who was headed north in the southbound lane, was airlifted to an area hospital, according to the AP.
