Part of Route 4 is closed in Harwinton due to a serious crash.

FOX61 reports officials say the crash happened on the Burlington town line with Harwinton, and now Route 4 is shut down to all traffic between Terryville Road (Route 72) and County Line Road.

Burlington fire officials say that the Life Star helicopter responded to the scene.

According to officials, the driver hit a vacant bus, and then later crashed near White Oak Drive. The bus driver was able to get ahold of the license plate number. Police said they didn’t chase the driver.

The road is likely to be closed for several hours, the fire department said, and people should avoid the area.

At least one person was seriously injured when a driver who hit a school bus in Burlington crossed Route 4 in Harwinton and hit another car head-on Wednesday morning, according to police.

The second crash happened around 8 a.m. near Route 72 and state police said Route 4 will be closed for a while.

Burlington police said the driver sideswiped a school bus and drove off. No children were on the bus at the time of the crash.

Three people were in the two vehicles and the driver believed to have struck both vehicles was flown by LifeStar medical transport helicopter to Hartford Hospital, according to police.

Hip-hop wants Supreme Court to rule, again, on when threatening to kill constitutes art

As Jamal Knox’s conviction for rapping that he would kill two Pittsburgh police officers made its way through the appellate courts, the US Supreme Court ruled that another rapper was protected in saying he wanted to kill a federal agent. Yet in ruling in Anthony Elonis’ favor, legal analysts worried, the high court had muddied what constitutes a true threat, the issue at hand in Knox’s case.
