Bethel Police, Fire & Ambulance Respond to 2-car Accident Wednesday Morning
Bethel Police, Bethel Fire Department’s Rescue 1 and Bethel Ambulance responded to 2-car accident Wednesday morning in front of the Bethel Police Department on Plumtrees Road at approximately 7:40 a.m. Traffic was tied up along Plumtrees while police directed motorists around the scene of the accident. A woman was carried away on a stretcher in a neck brace. Road conditions were slightly slippery this morning.
Bethel Police are at various locations today doing safety checks, thanks to a a federal grant from the Connecticut Department of Transportation. Local Police will be conducting seatbelt checks and cell phone enforcement. All local departments are working together to increase awareness of the importance of wearing seat belts. The seat belt checks the police are doing are part of the National “Click it or Ticket” campaign. During the campaign, instead of warnings, officers will issue tickets to motorists who are not wearing seat belts.
Local police will be doing checks tomorrow in Brookfield and Friday in Ridgefield, according to Bethel Police Chief Bruckenthal.
