New Canaan – Vehicle Totalled In Crash

A motorist was seriously hurt in a vehicle crash in New Canaan last Thursday.

At around 9:00 a.m., a vehicle was traveling on Rosebrook Road when it suddenly veered off the road and fell down an embankment. The driver was able to self-extricate from the vehicle but sustained critical burn injuries after the vehicle caught fire. Two officers of the New Canaan Police Department were in the area when the incident occurred and immediately assisted the injured motorist, putting out flames on the victim’s body with their bare hands. One officer was slightly hurt in the effort to save the life of the driver. The victim was eventually hospitalized and is currently in serious but stable condition. The case is still under investigation.

The two officers who risked their own safety to help the burning motorist will be receiving awards related to this incident. It cannot be overstated how many lives have been saved by the dedication of everyone who responds to various road accidents. Having said that, victims of these incidents are advised to seek legal help so that they know what their options are post-accident.
