Ashford – Multiple Injuries In Crash
Two motorists were injured when their vehicle swerved off the roadway in Ashford early Sunday morning.
At around 5:30 a.m., state and local officials were alerted to a crash on Route 44 (Ashford Center Road). According to reports, 42-year-old Melinda Mclaughlin was driving her 2010 Toyota Camry east on that road, with 36-year-old Calvin Jones as her passenger, when their vehicle unexpectedly swerved off the proper lane just before Pumpkin Hill Road, crashing into several roadside structures before falling down an embankment. Both motorists were immediately transported by paramedics to Windham Community Memorial Hospital for treatment. Officials stated that both occupants were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash. Authorities are currently investigating the incident and will release more details when appropriate.
While unlikely, and even with the relative safety of most modern vehicles, motorists have been injured in accidents caused by product defects. Authorities will always look at this and other possibilities when investigating these cases. It’s important to note that the discovery of any form of negligence may, under certain conditions, entitle injured parties to compensation with the help of expert legal counsel.
