Susan, no reported injuries. John, thanks for the update. Also got this message from Tanya Hipson Pistawka on Facebook: "Just came down 84 from Southbury to Middlebury and traffic headed west is at a crawl for most of that distance. Not sure if it's related or not but is be looking for alternate routes if possible." www.facebook.com/woodmiddpatch
