Southbury – Vehicle Destroyed In Crash

A vehicle crashed and caught fire in Southbury last Sunday.

At approximately 1:40 a.m., 18-year-old Elliot James Murphy was driving a 2014 Subaru Forester north on South Britain Road (Route 172) when his vehicle suddenly veered off the proper lane and crashed into a tree. The vehicle then caught fire and was totally consumed by it. Murphy sustained injuries in the crash but was able to escape the vehicle. Officials have yet to discover the involvement of prohibited substances or other vehicles in the incident. This post will be updated when authorities release more info.

In many cases, the causes of single-vehicle accidents are not readily apparent. It’s in these cases where vehicle defects or failures have to be considered, among other possibilities. That said, and whatever the outcome of these investigations, if officials discover any form of negligence, aggrieved parties may have the option of filing for damages if advised by legal experts.
