Glastonbury – Single-Vehicle Accident on Route 2
Earlier today, a single vehicle figured in an accident in Glastonbury.
Members of Companies 1 and 3 of the Glastonbury Fire Department arrived on the westbound lanes of Route 2 crossing Glastonbury to assist three passengers (including the driver) of a car that reportedly ran down an embankment near exit 8 of the highway. The occupants had to be extricated and transported to the hospital for treatment. The accident closed down one lane of the highway but authorities have since reopened the lane. Injuries sustained by the driver and passengers have yet to be reported, but officials confirmed that the accident scene has already been cleared.
When single-vehicle road accidents occur, authorities typically narrow down possible culprits as either the driver or some form of vehicle malfunction. This is worth noting because, in cases where driver negligence or error can be discounted, the vehicle is at fault. This example allows the driver or passenger to file personal injury claims against the manufacturer of the vehicle. This is just one possible scenario. So if you or someone you care about is involved in a similar event, having a legal expert supporting you can be beneficial.
