Conn. driver falls from car on I-95, Dodge goes on
DARIEN, Conn. — Connecticut State Police say a man fell out of his car onto Interstate 95 and watched his vehicle drive on for about two-tenths of a mile before it crashed into a pole. Troopers said they’re not sure why 51-year-old Robert Craig of Killingworth fell out of his 2006 Dodge Charger late Tuesday morning in Darien near Exit 10. Police said Craig was treated for minor injuries at Stamford Hospital.
State police said Craig fell onto the highway but wasn’t struck by any vehicles. They say other motorists stopped to help him and get him to safety.
Troopers said the car continued down the highway before striking a light pole and metal guardrail on the right shoulder.
The accident remains under investigation.
