One person is dead after a tractor-trailer hit a bridge abutment on Interstate 95 North in Westport late Friday morning, according to state police.
Emergency crews responded to the Sasco Creek Road overpass, between exits 18 and 19, at 11:43 a.m. and firefighters worked to extricate the driver.
There have been heavy traffic through the day.
Police are notifying the victim's family, so they have not yet released the person's name.
