‪#‎Fairfield‬ CT–Video Report–A car continuing traveling at highway speeds after exiting exit 24 of I-95 southbound hit a barrier designed to protect the gas pumps at Cumberland Farms on Kings Highway, clipped a taxicab, hit a parked car into another parked car that hit the building. Police are still sorting this tangled mess of events. Fortunately the four sent to the hospital did not suffer life threatening injuries even though you could not tell that from the damage to the vehicles involved. Firefighters attribute civilians at the scene with keeping the scene safe prior to their arrival. The video report tells so much more to this story.

  1. I was inside the store when this happen. It was so loud I thought someone hit the pump and blew up. I got the fire extinguisher from Cumberland farms and put out the fire until the fire dept. arrived. I’m glad every is ok, it’s a miracle no one died.

    1. Truly a miracle no one was killed!! I am still in disbelief after seeing the footage. A security camera at the Nissan dealership captured the car literally flying off the highway. Thank god those metal polls prevented her car from going inside Cumberland farms. And thank god no one happened to be walking out to their cars! All luck. I do hope the driver is given a long sentence in jail. There is no forgiveness for that kind of careless stupidity. She COULD have killed many people.
