New Haven – Two Incidents Related To Critical Injuries
A man was seriously injured after a shooting in New Haven yesterday afternoon.
There were reports of a shooting on Huntington Street at approximately 1:15 p.m. According to New Haven Police, a 20-year-old man was shot by an unidentified assailant who managed to flee the scene. The victim sustained critical injuries and was immediately brought to the hospital for treatment. A few minutes later, at approximately 2:00 p.m., officials went to the intersection of Prospect and Ogden Streets where a vehicle was involved in a crash. The driver reportedly tried to drive away from the area after seeing the police but was unable to make a proper turn, crashing into a fence surrounding the Albertus Magnus College. Authorities eventually apprehended the 22-year-old driver who is also a suspect in the Huntington Street shooting. The case is still being investigated by officials.
Connecticut laws are strict when it comes to promoting/protecting the safety of motorists and pedestrians. This is noteworthy because injuries caused by reckless behavior, DUI or negligence can be strong grounds for filing damage claims. Consulting a legal expert can be beneficial in these situations.
