A Connecticut state trooper and a wrong-way driver were injured in a Connecticut car accident on I-95 late at night April 12. Five cars were involved in the crash, which reportedly occurred when the driver of a BMW hit two patrol cars which were stopped on the highway to work on an earlier accident.

One of the trooper’s patrol cars whirled around and hit a Jeep, according to an April 13 edition of the Hartford Courant.

The BMW, driven by John Mysliwiec of Shelton, crossed the highway and ran into a Toyota Corolla, a reinforced concrete barrier, and then burst into flames.

The hurt trooper, Gregory Lebeau, suffered “non-incapacitating” injuries the Courant said, quoting a press release from the state police. The trooper, who is from Middletown, had head and left arm injuries and was taken to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Bridgeport.

The BMW driver was pulled from his car and dragged away from the flames by state troopers. He was driven to St. Vincent’s Hospital where he was being treated for broken ribs and a head injury.

The other motorists in the accident were not hurt. The northbound side of I-95 between exits 25 and 28 were closed temporarily.
