Meriden – Vehicle Falls On Owner

A man was killed by his car in Meriden last Saturday morning.

Authorities received calls from bystanders who witnessed a man crushed by his own car while working on it. 31-year-old Milton Rodriquez was attempting to change a flat tire on his vehicle when the jack he used failed. The vehicle then rolled towards Rodriguez, trapping him under the car. People who witnessed the incident worked together to lift the vehicle and free the man. Responders transported Rodriguez to the hospital where he died from his injuries. Officials have investigated the incident and have not discovered any foul play or ill-intent.

This case doesn’t present any evidence that indicates the involvement of other parties and was ruled an accident. Studying this and other similar cases can be useful because it highlights many of the possibilities that can result in injuries or deaths. There have been instances in the past of product/vehicle failures resulting in injuries, so these factors should not be overlooked. The bottom line: victims or next of kin involved in incidents resulting in serious injuries or deaths may have legal avenues at their disposal. Pursuing them with the help of legal experts can be a viable course of action under appropriate circumstances.
