Connecticut State Police Seek Witnesses to Serious Accident in Seymour
If you were driving along Route 8 through the Naugatuck Valley this past Saturday afternoon, the Connecticut State Police are asking you to check your dash-cam video after a serious accident that left a Shelton man seriously injured.
The incident occurred around 3 in the afternoon on Saturday, February 6, 2021, on Route 8 south bound in Seymour. Brian Vincent, 52, of Shelton, was traveling South on Rt. 8 in a 2008 VW Jetta. At approximately one mile South of the Exit 22 on-ramp, Vincent lost control of the vehicle, which veered off the right side of Rt. 8. The vehicle struck a guard rail and utility pole, then rolled over, finally coming to a rest on it's hood on Cedar Street in Seymour.
Troopers say that the traffic was moderate, moving at a steady flow, the weather and roadway were dry at the time of the accident also. Vincent was transported to Bridgeport Hospital by Shelton EMS with serious injuries. The accident remains under investigation. If you happen to have witnessed the accident, or you were traveling on Rt. 8 on Saturday around 3-3:30 PM and your dash-cam may have been running, the Connecticut State Police Troop I in Bethany would like to speak with you. Contact Trooper Bavolocco #1013 at 203-393-4200, or you can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
It must have been terrifying to see a vehicle fly off of Route 8 in that area, this is the long stretch of straight roadway that is right after the RT. 67 interchange in downtown Seymour. Please contact the Connecticut State Police of you have any information on this case.
