WEST HAVEN, Conn. — One of the two tractor-trailers that went down an embankment off I-95 in West Haven last Friday was carrying a load of Poland Springs Water, according to the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection.
The department said its Foods & Standards Division responded to the crash off I-95 southbound near Exit 42.
"We respond to these incidents to make sure everything gets cleaned up appropriately — and contaminated food doesn't make it into your grocery store," the DCP said via Twitter.
The crash caused large tie-ups during the Friday morning commute, closing two lanes for a time, according to the Connecticut State Police.
Minor injuries were reported in the crash, state police said. Two light poles were knocked down in the crash.
