Danbury – Serious Injuries In Pedestrian Incident
A person was trapped under a vehicle following an accident in Danbury last Friday.
At round 5:30 p.m., authorities received calls about an accident in the vicinity of the North Street Shopping Center. Emergency teams were quickly dispatched to the area and discovered a pedestrian who was struck by a vehicle traveling on Padanaram Road. The victim was trapped under the striking vehicle and had to be extricated by firefighters. No word yet on hospitalization, but witnesses report the pedestrian incurred serious injuries. The area was cleared just before 7:00 p.m. The case is currently under investigation. Officials have yet to release additional information and will do so in due time.
Pedestrian accidents almost always result in injuries, so it’s only appropriate to investigate these incidents for possible DUI, reckless behavior, or negligence. The involvement of any of these factors may also allow injured parties to file claims against liable parties. These are scenarios we can discuss with legal experts so consulting them makes sense in these challenging situations.
