Two motorists were transported to Norwalk Hospital Thursday morning with non-life-threatening injuries following a car crash on Route 123 in New Canaan, officials said.

Just before 11:30 a.m., emergency responders including the New Canaan Police Department, New Canaan Fire Department and New Canaan Emergency Medical Services were dispatched to New Norwalk Road near Old Kings Highway on a report of the crash.

It was a three-vehicle crash, according to fire officials. Air bags had been deployed in at least one vehicle involved, and one vehicle appeared to have come to a stop off of 123 facing the oncoming traffic lane.

New Norwalk Road was closed for about one hour while emergency personnel tended to the injured parties and the cause of the crash was investigated, according to police.

That investigation is ongoing and it isn’t yet clear whether any motor vehicle violations were committed, police said.
