Following a three-car collision on Route 7 on Friday afternoon, four persons were taken to the hospital.
According to Lt. Lee Grabner, a spokesman for the New Milford Police Department, the collision happened on Route 7, popularly known as Danbury Road locally, and was reported at 2:25 p.m. According to Grabner, all four individuals who were taken to the hospital were hurt due to the incident.

According to Grabner, the crash reconstruction team from the New Milford Police Department arrived to help with the investigation. He claimed that the road had been shut down.
Previous accident at Chestnut Land Road
According to authorities, the 2008 Audi A3 the kid was driving rolled over at the intersection at Chestnut Land Road.
According to Grabner, the portion of Chestnut Land Road where the rollover happened has a 25 mph speed restriction. He claimed he had no idea how fast the car was going, but “based on the accident, it was more than 25.” Grabner added that at the time of the 9:15 p.m. crash, he had “no idea” of the teens’ destination.
The teen driver was detained and charged with reckless driving, driving too fast for the road conditions, misusing the license plate, driving without a license, and violating passenger limits. On Friday, he is expected to appear in Torrington’s state Superior Court.
Although the learner’s permit requirements required an instructor or parent with a license to be in the car, the 16-year-old driver in the incident did not have one, according to Grabner.
New Milford PD urged youth to follow road rules after the accident
Local police are asking parents to be watchful with their teen drivers’ adherence to traffic laws and to promote safe driving practices following two serious accidents involving teen drivers.
Lt. Lee Grabner of the New Milford Police Department said, “It’s a very severe issue. Numerous laws are in place to safeguard these young people since they must obtain driving experience and demonstrate responsibility to become safe drivers.
Grabner’s advice follows a catastrophic collision involving a 16-year-old Derby driver who perished with four other children last weekend in Westchester County, New York. According to officials, the motorist did not have a learner’s permit or a driver’s license to operate a vehicle in Connecticut or New York.
Last Friday night, a 16-year-old Danbury resident was involved in a rollover crash that sent three teenagers to Danbury Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. New Milford police were called to the scene.
