WATERFORD, CT (WFSB) - A two-vehicle crash closed Route 85 in Waterford on Thursday morning.

According to firefighters, the crash happened in front of the Henny Penny store before 7:30 a.m.

It involved a commercial truck that was leaving a private business. The driver tried to make a left turn onto Route 85 and was struck by a driver who was headed north.

Three ambulances and a couple of medics were requested.

Three occupants were transported to Lawrence & Memorial Hospital in New London for injuries that appeared to be non-life threatening.

Firefighters said the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection was also called because of a small diesel spill.
