New Milford – New Details In Route 7 Crash

Police now have a clearer picture of the details surrounding a recent accident in New Milford.

Local officials have been investigating the June 11 crash thoroughly. New details have emerged from this. Tuesday last week, 24-year-old Christina Walters was driving her car when she collided with a truck driven by 59-year-old Jeff Griener. The crash killed Walters, while Griener sustained injuries. Investigators working on the case have now concluded that the truck Griener was driving maintained the proper northbound path prior to the incident, while Walters’ car veered from its southbound path onto the opposite lane, causing the collision. Officials are still investigating all possibilities in the accident and will update the public when appropriate.

The specific case demonstrates the dedication public officials have in investigating road incidents across the state. This is particularly noteworthy because establishing liability/accountability is always the priority for authorities in the aftermath of these unfortunate events. It’s only appropriate that we, as motorists, should be aware of our rights and legal options when involved in similar situations. Consulting legal experts in this field should prove to be useful.
