It isn't exit 14 to 68, You need to go exit 15 from I91 SB and then take a left onto 68 and follow 68 down to 5.

Please make the change to the detour directions as noted by another reader -- the correct exit is 15 to Route 68 off of I-91 Southbound.

Exit 14 Southbound is on East Center St. or Route 150.

Not sure if it's true about it being a fatality either. If so, I hope he/she rests in peace...what a horrible way to go!

I second guessed those directions myself, but not being in that are all the time, I though it was me who was wrong...I guess it was WTNH after all!!

I also passed this accident immediately after it occurred and it did not look like the driver was not in good shape at all.
Very very sorry to read about this...

A co-worker seen the whole thing, the girl that was driving the car. Was on the phone went pass all the signs and cones on the road. She could not pass any trucks on the hwy and instead of slowing down she speed up.

It's a shame that a person lost there life because some one could not drive correctly. Or even slow down in a dot site area.

The dot and state will make a lesson on this person and she will go to jail for a very long time. It's a shame that 2 peoples familys will be in morning.

My heart goes out to the man family and the dot workers. You have a tuff time as it is watching out for cars at high rate of spee.

God Bless

I knew Mary Boyle...she spent all her life in the school system and was a respectable, well-know educator. So full of life.......God bless her soul. It is so hard to sleep to night. Gosh

I am trying to understand what Tom wrote. Did u say that the driver of the car was on the phone and instead of slowing down they speed up. If that is the case........that's dangerous

I don't understand what Tom wrote either. If the driver was on the phone, the driver won't be going to jail since she passed away in the accident. So was there another driver that prevented this woman from being able to get over and out of the way of the DOT truck?

Mary Boyle lived a very active life. She volunteered in every project u could think of. She also spent a lot of years teaching and was retired. Bless her soul.

Oops...no Sally this story is about the first accident, earlier in the week when Mary Boyle died. Although, I think there is a thread for the later one as well. So sad to have two fatal accidents in one week in nearly the same place.

Have a nice evening!
