Old Lyme, CT (September 29, 2023) – On the afternoon of September 29th, around 1:17 p.m., a tragic accident unfolded on Interstate 95 in Old Lyme.
This unfortunate event involved a collision between a freight truck and a dumpster rental truck. The southbound freight truck was suddenly rear-ended by the dumpster rental truck.
