NORWALK, Conn. -- Five people were sent to the hospital after a four-vehicle pileup in a work zone on I-95 in Norwalk early Saturday, the Norwalk Fire Department said.

The accident involved two cars, a small pickup truck and a tractor-trailer truck. It occurred at 2:25 a.m. on I-95 northbound just beyond the entrance ramp from Exit 14, Deputy Fire Chief Edward Prescott said.

The tractor-trailer truck rear-ended a four-door Acura, which in turn struck another vehicle, Prescott said. The tractor-trailer also sideswiped the small pickup truck, he said.

Three women were passengers in the Acura, driven by a man. A woman in the backseat had to be extricated from the wreckage by firefighters, Prescott said.

The three female passengers from the Acura and two male occupants of the pickup truck were transported to Norwalk Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, he said.

At the time of the accident, traffic was moving at a reduced speed in the slow travel lane as work continued on the demolition of the median bridge support for the Taylor Avenue bridge replacement project.
