NORWALK, Conn. – A two-car accident at Connecticut and Richards avenues Thursday evening injured four of the five passengers in one of the vehicles, according to the Norwalk Fire Department.

Details of the 7:25 p.m. crash were not available, nor were the identities of the people involved. One of the vehicles was still in the intersection when firefighters arrived at the scene, and the other car, a late-model Isuzu Rodeo, jumped a curb and struck a utility pole head on, the fire department said.

Four women and a man were in that car; all four women were taken to Norwalk Hospital, the fire department said. Firefighters said they had to immobilize three of the women on backboards and with neck collars for transport.

The driver of the other vehicle was not injured, and the male in the Rodeo did not require medical treatment.

The conditions of the women taken to the hospital were not disclosed.

The crash snarled traffic in the area. Connecticut Light & Power crews were called to the scene for repairs to the utility pole, according to fire officials.

These type of car crash only happen when we are not concentrated to driving and didn't do proper servicing of our car. Rather than this no other cause, as we are more depending on technology now it is developing but not that much still defective to relay on. http://monacomotors.com/services.htm

second bad accident in a week at the same place! people run that light all the time! dangerous intersection! NPD would make good money there!

I lived in the condos there, and I always hated that intersection. Have to be extra careful. I have seen some bad accidents right there on more than one occasion.
