Colchester – Fatal Injuries After Car Crash

A fatal car crash took place in Colchester last Sunday afternoon.

The accident occurred on Route 354 (Deep River Road), near its intersection with Stanavage Road. According to police investigators, 82-year-old Joan Jansson was driving south when her vehicle suddenly swerved, crossed the median and drove off the left side of the road, hitting a tree at the Stanavage Road junction. Jansson sustained fatal injuries in the crash. Authorities are still investigating the cause of the incident.

Single-vehicle accidents are investigated thoroughly because if negligence, DUI or general reckless behavior can be eliminated, then other possibilities, such as product/vehicle defects, can also be considered. Taking note of this type of accident is important because we need to understand our rights as motorists if ever we are involved in similar incidents.
