Two-car accident in East Lyme sends at least one person to hospital
East Lyme — A two-car accident on West Main Street on Wednesday sent one person to Lawrence + Memorial Hospital.
The accident occurred about 9 p.m., resulting in one driver being extricated, East Lyme police Chief Michael Finkelstein said. That person was transported to the hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening. Finkelstein said Waterford and East Lyme police were working to reconstruct the accident.
“One vehicle, after the initial impact, rolled over into a business parking lot, causing some damage. I think there’s a light post down,” Finkelstein said. “We have our department and Waterford working together to reconstruct that scene. We’re piecing those answers together right now.”
He said he wasn’t sure if the driver who didn’t have to be extricated was transported to the hospital, but if he was, “it was nothing significant for injuries.”
