Car crash caught on trooper’s dashcam.

FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut state trooper’s dashcam video has captured the frightening moments when two people involved in a car accident narrowly miss being hit by a speeding vehicle that suddenly careens off the road. FAIRFIELD, Connecticut — A serious crash on Interstate 95 in Fairfield was caught on camera and Connecticut State Police are using the video to reinforce the importance of the mover over law. Twenty-one-year-old Yoni Rojas of Bridgeport was arrested and charged with various motor vehicle violations, including reckless driving, after he drove into one of two cars involved in an earlier accident.

Bridgeport resident Yoni Rojas, 21, was arrested after state police said his Nissan Maxima “plowed into another vehicle on” the southbound side of I-95 around 1 a.m. The two vehicles in the other crash were reportedly badly damaged, causing the lane to shut down and prompting other drivers to pull up on the shoulder to wait for the road to clear. Police arrested Rojas, who was charged with reckless endangerment, reckless driving, misuse of plates, failure to meet minimum insurance coverage, and failure to maintain a lane.

They jumped back in what state police called a “hair-raising” moment to avoid being hit right as the barreling auto takes out the vehicle they were standing next to and pushes it out of the camera’s view. CT law requires all motorists approaching emergency vehicles on a highway to reduce their speed below posted speed limit and move over one lane if it is safe to do so.
