May 8, 2018 GMT

DANBURY - Traffic is backing up along Interstate 84 as emergency crews respond to multiple incidents including a four car accident near Exit 8.

The accident occurred in the westbound lanes around 10:30 a.m. as traffic began to slow due to a previous incident. A tractor trailer truck that had been hit by a car near Exit 7 was leaking fluid onto the roadway.

Emergency crews were also responding to a car that was stopped in the westbound emergency lane after someone in the vehicle was suffering from an asthma attack and needed medical assistance.

At least one person was transported by ambulance from the four-car accident. Information on other injuries wasn’t immediately available.
