Several accidents caused major traffic delays on Interstate 95 in both directions Wednesday afternoon, state police said.
One accident was in the area of exit 18 on I-95 where state police said there was a camper on its side.
State police said a tow truck with a rotator tool was brought to the scene to right the camper in order for it to be towed.
There were no serious injuries reported at this accident, state police said.
The second accident was a two-vehicle crash on I-95 southbound between exits 17 and 16.
This second accident caused traffic congestion for more than five miles. State police said the accident was cleared and no serious injuries were reported.
A third accident was reported in the northbound lanes between exits 18 and 19 on I-95 northbound. It was a two-vehicle accident that did not yield serious injuries, state police said.
The accident backed up traffic for more than nine miles on I-95 northbound.
But I-95 wasn’t the only major road with traffic backups Wednesday.
Northbound traffic on the Merritt Parkway was congested from Norwalk to Fairfield, according to the Department of Transportation. Road work was reported to be the reason for these delays.
