New London – Man Injured By Paving Equipment
A worker was seriously hurt in an accident in New London yesterday afternoon.
A few minutes before 3:00 p.m., local authorities received reports of an incident on Mohegan Avenue Parkway (Route 32) just in front of Connecticut College. Emergency crews arrived at the scene and discovered a person trapped between a paver and a pickup truck. The victim sustained serious injuries in the accident and was immediately transported to L+M Hospital for treatment. According to officials, no other vehicle was in the area when they arrived. The accident is currently under investigation, and authorities are asking witnesses to contact them as soon as possible.
As this case is still being investigated, and with no outright obvious causes, accountability has yet to be established by authorities. That said, if any form of reckless or negligent behavior is discovered in this and other similar cases, those injured will have the option of filing for compensation with help from their legal counsel.
