Accident on South Main Street Takes Down Traffic Light [Updated]

A car runs a red light, strikes another vehicle, causing a rollover.

The traffic light at the intersection of South Main Street and Boulevard was still not functioning Monday morning as a result of a two-vehicle accident that took place Sunday afternoon.

A red Subaru being driven by a 17 year old traveling north on South Main St ran a red light and struck a Toyota Sequoia traveling west on Boulevard, according to police.

The impact caused the Toyota to roll over, strike a Mercedes parked in the lot of 81 South Main St. and shear off a large traffic control box located just west of the northwest corner of South Main St., police said.

The driver of the Toyota was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle, according to police. The driver was subsequently transported to Hartford Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

The driver of the Subaru was not injured and was released at the scene.

NBC Connecticut reported that South Main Street was closed on Sunday and traffic was diverted for a time. The road was reopened later in the evening.

As of 9:30 a.m. Monday, stop signs were being used in all four directions at the intersection of South Main Street and Boulevard.

No information was provided as to when the traffic light would be restored.
