State Troopers Investigate Damage to Middletown Weigh Station

The Connecticut State Police Traffic Services Unit is currently investigating an incident that occurred at the Middletown Weigh Station (part of the rest area complex) located on I-91 North between exits 19 and 20. 

Sometime between 1:30 p.m. August 22, 2011 and 5:30 a.m. August 23, 2011, an unknown vehicle, suspected to be a tractor trailer truck, struck the east side of the scale house building and fled the scene.  The collision caused heavy damage to the roof and underlying structure, rain gutters, and inspection lights.  Through investigation, it is believed the evading vehicle backed into the building.
