There was a 10 car accident in Fairfield yesterday afternoon. State police say a car was travelling on Interstate-95 and struck a metal beam guardrail and a light pole, knocking it down on top of another car. Four other cars hit the light pole, which was pushed into a seventh vehicle. The eighth car ran over the pole causing two other cars to hit the light pole, which became lodged under the last car to hit it.
Only one person sustained injuries in the 10 car crash, and that was the initial driver who went off the roadway.
Also at the scene of the accident, two cars crashed into each other and into the light pole, sending one person to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
