One Vehicle Rollover On I-84
Sun. Jun 14th 2020

Sandy Hook VFR, Newtown Volunteer Ambulance Corps, an on-call paramedic, and CT State Police were dispatched on Sunday at 20:20 for a vehicle that had gone off the road following a reported deer strike. The accident was reported on I-84 West near Exit 11. 

It was initially unclear which side of the highway the collision had occurred, but dispatch reported multiple calls from the area. 

Second Assistant Chief Andy Ryan was first on the scene. He reported a vehicle down an embankment, with the driver able to self-extricate. 

The driver, a 24-year-old male, told first responders he had swerved to miss hitting a deer. His vehicle then went over the embankment, into the median between the westbound and eastbound high speed lanes. 

Rescue 444 and Engine 441 responded to the scene with crews; Engine 442 responded from the substation and was staged at the Exit 11 commuter lot. Firefighters helped with patient care. The medic was canceled en route to the scene; NVAC transported the driver to a hospital. 

Firefighters remained on the scene until the vehicle could be pulled up, and then towed. Sandy Hook returned to service at 21:46.
