A Massachusetts tractor-trailer driver was involved in car accident earlier this week. Richard Jean, 49, was driving north on Interstate 95 when his tractor-trailer, which is owned by Bothstein Sugar Corporation, was hit by David Nance of Norwalk, Connecticut.
Police say Nance was speeding and his car became wedged under Jean’s tractor-trailer. The car was then dragged a short distance before Jean pulled his truck to the side of the highway.
Firefighters had to extract Nance from his vehicle because he became trapped. Meanwhile, local and state police were forced to close the entrance ramp and right lane of the highway as rescuers worked to free Nance, who was unconscious at the time.
As of Wednesday, the accident victim was listed in critical condition at St. Vincent’s Medical Center. The motor vehicle accident is currently under investigation, but no charges have been filed according to state police.
