First accidents reported on the AM commute

UPDATE  8:28 a.m.

Still not too bad of a ride on the Merritt Parkway and I-95 this morning.

But on the Hutchinson River Parkway, there’s a northbound accident near the Connecticut border. The crash is messing up traffic heading into Connecticut.

The worst accident is on Route 8 in Waterbury. The southbound crash has traffic backed up into Watertown.

Interstate 95

A light traffic day with the only southbound slowdowns starting in Westport and continuing into Darien.

Merritt Parkway

Not bad here either. Traffic slows near the Route 25 merge in Trumbull and through No Man’s Land into Westport.
