FAIRFIELD — What started as a two-car crash Wednesday ended up being declared a mass-casualty incident by the Fire Department.

Fairfield police received a report at approximately 7:40 a.m. of a two-vehicle accident on Air Base Parkway at Clay Bank Road. Officers responded to find one person injured in the crash, Sgt. Jeff Osgood said.

While officers and fire crews responded to that scene, a secondary crash occurred involving four more cars, Osgood said. That wreck injured four more people, he said.

Any time there are more than four people injured in an incident, it qualifies as a mass-casualty scene, Osgood said.

It was unclear whether the rain was a factor in either crash.

In all, five people were transported to local hospitals with injuries that were not deemed to be life-threatening.
