Crash Closed Route 2

A crash closed Route 2 Eastbound near  exit 2 in East Hartford this afternoon, when a car went off the highway and down an embankment into some woods.

The badly damaged sedan came to rest upright, in an area thick with trees and bushes.

At one point, State Police stood at the top of the embankment, looking down at the car as they conducted their investigation.

The crash was near Darlin Street, although it was difficult to see from the street because of the brush.
