Three-Vehicle Crash At Thompsonville Rd. & SR1

Police are investigating a crash involving a tractor trailer and two cars north of Milford. According to the state police, the incident occurred at approximately 1:24 p.m. on Dec. 30, 2012, as Steven Popa was operating a 2007 Peterbilt tractor trailer southbound on Bay Road (US113/SR1) in the right lane approaching the traffic light at Thompsonville Road, a 2008 Nissan Xterra being operated by Barbara Allen was coming to a stop in the right lane of Bay Road due to the traffic light turning red and Patricia Campbell, operating a 2005 Chrysler Town and Country in the right lane behind the Xterra, was slowing for the light as well. Police claim that Popa failed to see the traffic slowing in time and collided with the rear of the minivan which in turn struck the rear of the Xterra pushing all the vehicles off the west side of the roadway.

According to police, this was the condition of the people involved:

– Patricia Campbell and her husband Albert, who were properly restrained, were removed from the scene by EMS and transported to Milford Memorial Hospital where they were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

– Barbara Allen and a 10 year old passenger were not injured and did not require on-scene medical attention. They were both properly restrained.

– Steven Popa, who was properly restrained, was not injured in the crash and was cited for Inattentive Driving.

Southbound lanes of Bay Road north of Thompsonville Road were shut down for approximately 1 ½ hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.
