Hamden – Fatal Pedestrian Crash Update
Authorities just released an update regarding last month’s pedestrian incident in Hamden.
On February 12, 31-year-old Pinky McBurrows of Ansonia was driving near the intersection of Route 10 and Woodin Street when her vehicle suddenly swerved off the roadway and crashed into a bus stop, hitting two pedestrians. 57-year-old Maurice Messier was killed in the crash, while 59-year-old Pedro Esquilin sustained critical injuries and was taken to the hospital by emergency responders. Esquilin died at the hospital last Friday. McBurrows was already facing multiple charges related to the incident. With this recent development, additional charges may be filed against her.
Pedestrian accidents can be followed by various circumstances as exemplified by this case. Regardless of conditions and other factors, liable parties will be brought to justice and will face charges appropriate to their offenses. That said, victims or their families are still advised to consult legal experts so that other options can also be explored and pursued.
