Another Car Hits a Tree on Merritt, Woman Injured

WestportNow.com Image
A Wilton woman was injured tonight when her car went off the Merritt Parkway between exits 44 in Fairfield and 42 in Westport and hit a tree. Witnesses said the car was traveling at a high rate of speed when it left the southbound roadway and wrapped itself around the tree, according to Westport Assistant Fire Chief Robert Kepchar. Westport and Fairfield firefighters had to cut the roof off the car to extricate her. The extent of her injuries was not known. It was the third serious accident on this stretch of roadway in the past two weeks. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo

Truck Wedged Under Saugatuck RR Bridge Ties Up Traffic

A truck carrying a backhoe on a flatbed trailer became wedged under the railroad bridge on Westport’s Saugatuck Avenue today, forcing closure of the roadway for more than four hours.WestportNow.com Image

The truck, driven by a Norwalk landscaper, became wedged as he tried to pass under the bridge shortly after noon. The maximum clearance for the underpass is 10 feet, 11 inches.

Busy Saugatuck Avenue was closed to traffic for more than four hours while crews, including a heavy duty wrecker, worked to free the truck, according to Assistant Fire Chief Robert Kepchar.

Westport police rerouted traffic to Ferry Lane West to bypass the traffic. As a result of the impact, the backhoe partially fell off the truck, making its removal more difficult, Kepchar said.

Two Men Rob Black Duck Café

UPDATED Two men armed with a knife and gun robbed the Black Duck Café in Westport’s Saugatuck area early today, police said.

The men tied up a worker in a back room at about 4:45 a.m. and took an undetermined amount of money from a safe at the popular restaurant at 605 Riverside Ave., according to police..

“They took a butcher knife from the kitchen and told him if he didn’t open the safe for them—give them the combination—they would start cutting his toes off,” owner Peter K. Aitkin told Cablevision News12. “He was more mad than shook up.”

The victim was able to free himself and called police at about 5:20 a.m., police said. He was not injured, according to detectives.
