Southbury – Fatality In Two-Vehicle Collision

Officials are currently investigating a crash in Southbury last Friday evening.

66-year-old Elizabeth Ballard and 78-year-old Thomas Sherk were driving a Toyota RAV4 and a Nissan Frontier, respectively, on Old Waterbury Road when they collided near Dublin Road. Sherk incurred serious injuries, while Ballard died due to critical injuries sustained in the crash. Authorities have yet to provide additional info on the incident as it’s still under active investigation. This post will be updated as soon as additional details become available.

Officials have yet to identify the cause of this crash. There have been many instances of reckless behavior, DUI or negligence causing similar crashes in the past, so these factors will be studied by investigators handling this case. Suffice it to say, the discovery of any of these factors will allow victims or their families to pursue legal options that can help them cope with the help of expert counsel.
