Posted by Richard P. Hastings | Apr 16, 2012 | 0 Comments

The CT State Police reported that a state trooper was injured in a motor vehicle accident on I95 in Bridgeport. The trooper was injured when a 63 year old gentleman hit him while going the wrong way on I95. This accident resulted in the highway being shut down for hours.

The Trooper Gary Lebeau was treated and released from St. Vincent's Medical Center  in Bridgeport as a result of the injuries sustained in the accident. The trooper is not expected to lose any time on the job.

CT State Police spokesman Lt. Paul Vance stated that the driver of a car was driving the wrong way on I-95 at the time of the crash,  John Mysliwiec of Shelton, remains hospitalized and is expected to face charges, Vance said.

The injured trooper was inside of his cruiser, on I95 attending to the scene of an earlier accident when his vehicle was struck. The force of the impact caused the trooper, who was inside his cruiser, to spin 180 degrees and hit another car carrying two women. The force of Mysliwiec's car caused  it cross the highway, where it collided with another car carrying three people in it and then struck a barrier on the south shoulder at which point it  burst into flames.

The accident is still under investigation.
