New Haven – Motorist Arrested After Fatal Crash
A driver was arrested following an intersection crash in New Haven last Saturday that resulted in a fatality.
At approximately 5:29 p.m., a still-unidentified motorcycle operator was at the intersection of Sylvan and Winthrop Avenues when he was hit by an Acura sedan driven by 42-year-old Jerry Boucicault of New Haven. The rider sustained critical injuries in the crash and was pronounced dead soon after. Boucicault has since been arrested by officials and is currently facing a charge of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence (DUI). He is scheduled to be arraigned today. Authorities will release more information about the incident when appropriate.
Road accidents that result in fatalities are investigated thoroughly to determine if negligence or reckless behavior could be involved. Aside from these factors, incidents involving DUI will only aggravate cases against suspects/culprits. It’s also worth remembering that motorists who are injured because of these elements may be entitled to file for damages. Talking to legal experts should be a good first step identifying a suitable course of action.
