Mansfield – Fatality After Intersection Crash
A motorist died after his vehicle crashed in Mansfield last Saturday morning.
67-year-old Duane Farrell of Vernon was driving his 2016 Volkswagen Jetta north on Route 195 when his vehicle swerved into the right shoulder of the roadway; hitting several objects, including a utility pole; before stopping. Emergency crews quickly arrived at the scene and discovered Farrell injured and unresponsive. Cindy Farrell, his passenger, also sustained serious injuries. Both victims were quickly brought to Windham Community Medical Hospital for treatment. Duane Farrell died soon after. According to officials, both victims were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the accident. Authorities are investigating the possibility that the driver may have experienced a medical condition prior to the actual crash. The incident is still under investigation and officials will release more information when they become available.
Investigators handling this case have so far not seen any indication of weather or road conditions causing the crash. That said, authorities will study all possible angles in any road incident so that they can accurately identify causes/culprits. It’s important to take note of this because if negligence is established in any of these cases, injured parties may be entitled to compensation or have legal options at their disposal.
