Trees Along Merritt Parkway Pose A Danger

Trees lining the Merritt Parkway make for a scenic commute but those same trees can make a ride dangerous and even deadly if they fall in the road. State of Connecticut crews have been trimming trees after a tree limb fell on a motorist’s car Sunday night near exit 50. The motorist remains in critical condition. Last June, a New York family crashed into a downed tree in Westport. The accident killed two parents and injured their two children. Governor Jodi Rell has called for crews to take a closer look at condition of trees along the state roadway.  Given the latest incident, it appears that more extensive tree inspections are required to ensure the safety of motorists driving on the Merritt Parkway.
