Milford – Highway Vehicle Fire

A vehicle caught fire on the highway in Milford yesterday evening.

At around 8:40 p.m., authorities dispatched emergency crews to the southbound lanes of I-95 after receiving reports of an accident in the area. According to responders, a vehicle caught fire near Exit 40, resulting in a still unspecified level of injuries. Based on evidence already collected by officials, no other vehicle was involved in the incident. Medical personnel have already tended to motorists affected by the accident, though their identities have yet to be disclosed. Authorities are currently investigating the case and will release updates as their investigation progresses.

In the absence of immediately apparent causes, single-vehicle accidents are thoroughly investigated for less-obvious possibilities, including product defects. That said, and whatever the outcome of these investigations, if authorities discover any form of negligence, victims not responsible for these incidents may have the option of filing for damages as deemed appropriate by legal experts.

Norwich – Truck Crash Victim Identified

Local authorities just released the identity of last Monday’s crash fatality in Norwich.

78-year-old Robert Potter was driving his pickup truck on West Town Street when he reportedly experienced a serious medical condition. His vehicle swerved off the roadway, hitting several vehicles, including a school bus, before coming to a stop in a Global Gas Station parking lot. The victim had to be extricated from the truck by responding firefighters before he was taken to the hospital where he was eventually pronounced dead. The driver was the only person injured in the incident. Authorities are still investigating the crash.

Despite the presence of an obvious cause, authorities handling this case will still look at all possibilities before making any conclusion. This is noteworthy because if investigators discover negligence in this and other similar cases, victims or their families may have the option of filing for damages with the help of expert legal counsel.

He is now scheduled to appear in court. This post will be updated when authorities release more details regarding this case.

Westport – Rush-Hour Highway Accident

A rush-hour crash occurred in Westport yesterday morning.

The incident occurred on the southbound lanes of Route 15, about a third of a mile before Exit 41 (Route 33/Wilton Road). Emergency responders arrived in the area at around 7:38 a.m. and discovered an accident that resulted in injuries. Officials have yet to specify the number of vehicles and motorists involved in the incident but have already accounted for and assisted everyone affected by the crash. A portion of the highway was closed following the incident, and it took road crews about an hour and a half to process and clear the site. This post will be updated when authorities release more information.

Following protocol, emergency crews are required to cordon off accident sites to allow them to assist people involved in these incidents, and allow investigators to study and collect evidence that will help identify crash causes/culprits. It pays to be aware of these protocols/processes so that we know what our options are if ever we or our loved ones are involved in similar situations in the future.

Stratford – Highway Vehicle Accident

A vehicle accident closed a section of the highway in Stratford yesterday.

At around 4:58 p.m., emergency crews responded to the northbound lanes of Route 15 after receiving reports of a crash in the area. According to responders, an unspecified number of vehicles was involved in an accident about a quarter of a mile before Exit 54 (Milford Connector) that resulted in injuries. Medical personnel quickly attended to everyone affected by the incident, while other crews started cleanup operations. All lanes were cleared less than an hour later. Officials have yet to identify anyone involved in the crash pending an investigation. Updates will be provided as soon as they become available.

Promptly clearing accident sites on highways is always an important objective for emergency responders. They do this without compromising on another important goal: identifying crash causes accurately. This point is particularly important to us motorists because if ever we are injured in similar situations, establishing accountability can help us seek justice and, under ideal circumstances, file for compensation/damages.

Windsor – Rush-Hour Highway Crash

A rush-hour crash resulted in partial highway closure in Windsor yesterday.

At around 4:12 p.m., fire and EMS crews were dispatched to the southbound lanes of I-91 and discovered a vehicle accident that occurred about half a mile past Exit 40. Medical personnel quickly assisted everyone injured in the incident, while other road crews cordoned off the area to facilitate an investigation into the cause of the crash. All motorists involved have since been accounted for, and it took responders about an hour to clear all lanes of the highway. Officials are currently investigating the accident and will release more information when appropriate.

The ability of accident responders to process and clear crash sites cannot be overstated as their dedication have, in many instances, saved lives and prevented further damage. These things said, establishing liability will always be their primary objective as this can help them prevent future accidents from happening, as well as enable victims of these incidents to file for damages in cases where reckless behavior or negligence has been discovered.

Greenwich – Highway Tractor-Trailer Crash

Greenwich motorists experienced heavy delays following a truck crash yesterday morning.

At around 11:20 a.m., a tractor-trailer was traveling on the southbound side of I-95 when it collided with another vehicle near Exit 4 (Indian Field Road). The driver of the car was injured in the accident and was immediately taken to the hospital for treatment. The incident forced the truck into the center divider of the highway where it rolled over to its side. A significant amount of diesel fuel was spilled onto the roadway, forcing responders to cordon off the area and ask for support from cleanup crews. The accident resulted in massive delays that also affected local streets in the area. The crash is currently under investigation. Updates will be provided as soon as authorities release more information.

This case highlights the diligence accident responders will always exhibit when dealing with any road incident. Crash sites have to be processed and cleared as quickly as possible to minimize collateral effects like, in this case, heavy delays. Of course, the safety of all motorists will always be their first priority, followed by the accurate identification of accident causes. The second point is noteworthy because motorists injured in similar scenarios may have the option of filing for damages under appropriate circumstances.

Norwich – Crash After Medical Emergency

A driver seemingly lost control of a pickup truck in Norwich, resulting in a crash yesterday afternoon.

At around 4:01 p.m., local authorities received reports of a truck that crashed in the area around 154 West Town Street and sent responders to the area. According to officials, a driver in a pickup truck was traveling west on that road when he/she was observed experiencing a medical emergency while driving. The vehicle suddenly swerved off the roadway, crashing into several vehicles, including a school bus, before coming to rest in front of a fuel station. Emergency crews immediately transported the victim to William H. Backus Hospital for treatment. The patient is currently in serious condition. Authorities are currently investigating the incident and will release more information, including the identity of the victim, as their investigation progresses.

While the circumstances in this case point to a medical condition as the cause of the crash, investigators will still study all possibilities before making any conclusion. This is obviously in line with accident protocols. Having said that, if authorities discover any form of negligence not associated with the victim, he/she may have the option of filing for damages as deemed appropriate by legal experts.

If you or someone you care about was injured in an accident, you may need help navigating the complex challenges of paying for your medical bills, recouping your lost wages, and regaining your quality of life.

Columbia – Motorists In Crash Identified

State officials just released the identities of people involved in last Sunday’s motorcycle accident in Columbia.

33-year-old Gordon Reynolds was riding his Honda motorcycle east on Route 66 (Middletown Road) when he collided with a Honda Civic traveling west and attempting to make a left turn onto Pine Street. The driver of the Honda, 37-year-old Eric Ryan Millette of Columbia, sustained minor injuries, while Reynolds was thrown off his motorcycle and taken to St. Francis Hospital (by LifeStar) for treatment of serious injuries. The crash is still under investigation. Officials continue to encourage anyone who may have witnessed the incident to contact them as soon as possible.

LifeStar support is typically requested when accidents involve serious or critical injuries, among other possibilities. Officials handling this case have yet to identify its cause. Suffice it to say, if they discover negligence, DUI or reckless behavior, injured parties may have the option of filing for compensation/damages as deemed appropriate by legal experts.
