Bridgeport, CT – Woman Dead, Two Hurt in Chain-Reaction Wreck on Rte 8

Bridgeport, CT (October 15, 2021) – A New York woman died in a multi-vehicle crash that occurred on Route 8 in Bridgeport Friday afternoon, October 15.

Four vehicles were involved in the accident, according to State Police. Initial reports indicate that a Toyota Corolla was traveling in the left lane on Route 8 southbound near three other vehicles, including a KIA SUV, Nissan Altima, and Toyota Camry.

The driver of the Toyota Camry then hit the Nissan Altima, causing a chain-reaction wreck that resulted in the Toyota Camry hitting the passenger side of the KIA and pushing it into the guardrail.

State Police added that the Nissan Altima then hit the back of the Toyota Corolla. The driver of the Nissan Altima, a 37-year-old woman from Rockaway, New York, was pronounced dead on the scene.

One of the other drivers and a passenger in a separate car were transported to local hospitals for minor injuries.

Route 8 southbound has reopened, though the accident is still under investigation.  

Our deepest condolences go out to the family of the deceased victim. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
