Serious crash in Derby

Route 34, Roosevelt Drive,  is closed in both directions between Lakeview Terrace and Buckingham Street in Derby for what police say is a very serious accident between a tractor-trailer and an SUV.

This head-on crash may involve a fatality, officials said.

EMTs are on the scene, along with Derby firefighters and police. People are trapped inside the SUV, police say, and extrication is underway.

If you possibly can, avoid the area. If you normally take Route 8 north to Exit 14 or 15 and then use Route 34 to reach Seymour, Oxford, Newtown and points north STAY on Route 8 to the Route 67 exit in Seymour and get off there.
