A Watertown man switching lanes on the I-84 yesterday has been cited for unsafe lane change after causing a massive morning tie up in Newtown. State Police say 53-year old Bradley Kinzly was in the right lane, sideswiped a car in the center lane and rear ended a fully loaded cement mixer truck.
The accident happened just before exit 10 westbound, around 7:45am. At least two lanes were closed for about two hours. Residual delays lasted until about 10am.
The driver of the car that was sideswiped complained of back pain. The 66-year old Manchester man declined medical attention at the scene.
All three vehicles were towed. The state Department of Transportation and Newtown Fire Department assisted with cleaning up anti-freeze and debris from the vehicles. No other injuries were reported.
