CT State Police troopers, Newtown Volunteer Ambulance Corps, and Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire & Rescue Company responded to I-84 East near the Exit 11 on-ramp around 4:50 pm Thursday, May 12, following a reported two-vehicle crash. According to the CSP report, Joseph Rizzo, 58, of Oxford, was traveling east on the interstate in the slow speed lane near Exit 11, operating a 2020 Harley-Davidson FLHX. Tori Lynn Petryshyn, 28, of Bethlehem, was operating a 2014 Ford Escape Titanium directly behind the motorcycle. Rizzo slowed for traffic ahead, and the motorcycle was struck from behind by the Escape. Rizzo was checked for minor injuries, but declined transport to a hospital. Petryshyn reported no injuries. Both vehicles were driven from the scene. The crash closed one of the two travel lanes during rush hour, leading to heavy backups for a few miles behind the crash scene. Petryshyn was issued an infraction for following too closely. —Bee Photo, Hicks
