State police say all ten occupants of a Greater Hartford Rideshare van were taken to a hospital for observation Wednesday  after an accident on Interstate 84 in East Hartford.

Police say the van was travelling in the center lane near exit 56 shortly before 10:30 when the driver braked for a construction project and was hit from behind by a pickup truck.  The truck driver was not hurt.

The accident tied up traffic on Interstate 84 eastbound for a time, blocking three lanes for emergency equipment,  and causing a backup to the “tunnel” in Hartford  and beyond.
