Hartford – Teen Injured In Motorcycle Crash

A scooter rider was seriously hurt in an accident in Hartford last Monday evening.

At approximately 11:30 p.m., a 17-year-old scooter driver sustained serious injuries after colliding with another motorcycle at the intersection of Merrill Street and New Park Avenue. Officials quickly arrived at the scene and cordoned off the intersection to allow responders to assist those affected by the collision. The identities of the scooter and motorcycle operators have yet to be released pending an investigation — an accident reconstruction team are still reviewing their findings. Authorities will release more updates as they become available.

Nighttime driving is inherently riskier to all motorists, so accurately identifying the causes of evening accidents can help authorities make all roads safer for everyone. It’s also important to note that victims of these accidents can talk to legal experts so that they can promptly find closure after these unfortunate events.

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. The Connecticut attorneys with Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers can help you through this process, working to hold the responsible party accountable for the pain and suffering you have had to endure.

Colchester – Motorcycle Crash Victim Identified

The victim of last Thursday’s motorcycle accident in Colchester has been identified.

33-year-old Ricky Ayala of Colchester was riding his motorcycle northbound on New London Road (Route 85) when he lost control of his bike, swerving off the road and into a grassy area. He sustained critical injuries in the accident and was pronounced dead shortly after. Authorities closed down the road immediately after the crash. It has since been reopened. The crash remains under investigation, and state police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to contact them as soon as possible.

There have been instances in the past where product defects have resulted in single-vehicle accidents, so this factor (among other factors, of course) is always investigated in these incidents. It’s important to note that if authorities discover negligence not connected to victims of these unfortunate events, those victims or their families may have various options they can discuss with their legal counsel.

The accident occurred on Route 85 (New London Road), near Homonick Road. Emergency crews were dispatched to the area and discovered a motorcycle crash that resulted in critical injuries. Everyone involved in the incident has been attended to, and officials had to close Route 85 for several hours to facilitate cleanup of the accident scene. The crash is currently under investigation.

Seymour – Crash Fatality Identified

The victim of a recent intersection crash in Seymour has been identified.

73-year-old Francis Markey of Beacon Falls was riding his motorcycle north on North Street (Route 721) when he collided with a vehicle traveling west on Route 67 (New Haven Road). Markey sustained critical injuries in the crash and was immediately brought to the hospital where he eventually died. The driver of the vehicle was not harmed but was still sent to the hospital for evaluation. The case is still being investigated. Officials continue to ask anyone who may have witnessed the incident to contact them as soon as possible.

This case remains open, so we have yet to know the specific cause of the crash. Suffice it to say, if investigators discover negligence or reckless behavior, the victim’s family will have the option of filing for damages if deemed appropriate by their legal counsel.

Somers – Serious Injuries After Motorcycle Crash

A person was airlifted to the hospital after a crash in Somers last Sunday evening.

According to authorities, the accident occurred in the area of 344 Springfield Road (Route 83). At 6:54 p.m., 30-year-old Micheal Provost was riding his 1990 Harley Davidson north on that road when his motorcycle suddenly swerved onto the opposite lane and into a grassy roadside area. Officials who arrived at the scene immediately requested LifeStar support, and Provost was airlifted to Baystate Medical Center for treatment of serious injuries. No other vehicle was found at the accident site. Authorities are currently investigating the crash and will release more information as they become available.

LifeStar support is typically requested in incidents with serious or critical injuries as authorities will always prioritize the safety of motorists plying all roads in the state.
