Hamden – Entrapment And Injuries In Crash

A motorist was trapped and injured in a crash in Hamden yesterday morning.

Local fire and EMS crews responded to 2891 State Street (Route 5) after receiving reports of an accident in the area. According to responders, a car was involved in a crash, trapping its occupant/driver. Firefighters had to extricate the injured person, after which he/she was tended to by medical personnel and transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital for further treatment. The identity of the motorist has yet to be disclosed by officials pending an investigation into the cause of the crash. Authorities blocked off the area temporarily — it has since been cleared. Officials will release updates, including the identity of the injured motorist, when appropriate.

Vehicle entrapment still occurs despite various safety features in almost all modern vehicles. It usually indicates the severity of a particular crash, as well as highlight the risk motorists have to shoulder when traveling anywhere. These things said, it’s important to know what causes these accidents so that similar situations can be prevented. Identifying causes/culprits can also open various legal avenues that injured parties can explore, including filing for damages as a way of finding closure after these traumatic events.
