Crews respond to Merritt crash

State police and Fairfield and Trumbull firefighters responded Friday morning to a report of an accident on the southbound Merritt Parkway between exits 48 and 47 in Trumbull.

A Fairfield fire dispatcher said the two-car accident, which was called in at about 8:30 a.m., was cleared fairly quickly and that no one was seriously injured.

Both lanes remained open after the crash, but rush-hour traffic was slowed on the busy stretch of road while crews were on scene.

Shortly before 9:30 a.m., the state Department of Transportation said delays in the area had cleared.
