There was a three-vehicle collision Friday afternoon on Old State Road after one motorist stopped because he was concerned about what he thought were inadequate construction warnings.

Norwalk Police Capt. Dave Light said authorities believe there were plenty of signs or flaggers for the construction at the reservoir spillway.

Eugene T. Borgia, 51, of 2 Victoria Circle had stopped about 3 p.m. to speak to the construction workers. Crystal Trombley, 29 of 38 Townsend Ave., then stopped her Dodge truck behind Borgia's vehicle, Officer Timothy Skinner said.

Janis I. George crested the hill and hit the rear of Trombley's truck, pushing it into Borgia's vehicle, Skinner said.

George and her passenger, Earl Zimmerman, 39, of 824 S. Norwalk Road, went to Fisher-Titus Medical Center with various injuries and were later released. George was charged with failure to maintain assured clear distance.
