The ramp from Route 2 eastbound to I-84 eastbound has partially reopened after a serious crash closed part of the highway, police said.
The one-car accident occurred at 2:19 p.m. Wednesday afternoon when a car attempting to exit Route 2 misjudged and hit a guardrail. The car went airborne and landed below the highway on Darlin Street in East Hartford, police said.
Five passengers were injured. Two are in serious condition, one is critical and two have minor injuries, police said. One person managed to climb out of the car and call for help.
Right now the ramp to I-84 eastbound is partially open and traffic is moving slowly. Police expect road closures to last another 45 minutes.
