Bridgeport – Motorist Trapped Inside Car Identified

Officials have identified the motorist who was trapped inside his car in Bridgeport last Wednesday.

21-year-old Jarrod Marotto of Southington was driving his car south on Park Avenue when a tree struck by lightning fell onto his vehicle. He was seriously injured in the accident and was trapped inside the vehicle for around an hour while live power lines dangled above his car. Responding authorities had to wait for crews from United Illuminating Co. to arrive and remove the fallen tree and lines before Marotto could be extricated. He was quickly transported to St. Vincent Medical Center but was later pronounced dead. Officials are still investigating the details connected to this accident. More information will be released when available.

Despite the presence of seemingly obvious causes, authorities handling this case will still study the circumstances surrounding the crash and subsequent rescue to ensure that negligence did not play a part. If any party can be considered negligent, the family of the victim can be entitled to damages/compensation under appropriate circumstances.

Bridgeport – Injury In Pedestrian Hit

A pedestrian was injured in an intersection accident in Bridgeport late yesterday evening.

Authorities have responded to reports of a pedestrian accident at the intersection of Capitol and Parrott Avenues. Injuries were reported, but officials have yet to release information on the victim or the suspect vehicle. Also, it has yet to be determined if this is a case of hit-and-run. Authorities will update the public when more information becomes available.

Officials investigate pedestrian accidents carefully so that they can accurately determine causes/culprits. This is important because if reckless behavior or negligence is a factor in any of these cases, injured pedestrians may be entitled to compensation with the help of expert legal counsel. Incidents of hit-and-run can only strengthen these cases against suspects.

Bridgeport – High-Speed Crash And Attempted Hit-And-Run

A high-speed crash in Bridgeport yesterday evening trapped two motorists inside their car.

The accident occurred on Fairfield Avenue, near its intersection with Clinton Avenue. According to authorities and witnesses, a white Audi was traveling on Fairfield Avenue when it crashed into a red Hyundai. Immediately after the collision, a driver was observed trying to flee the accident scene. Police were able to apprehend the suspect a short time later. Two people had to be extricated from their vehicle by emergency crews — it took them around half an hour to do so. Everyone injured has since been transported to the hospital by EMS crews. The identities of those involved have yet to be disclosed pending an investigation into the cause of the incident.

It goes without saying that injuries resulting from reckless behavior or negligence can entitle parties to damage/compensation under appropriate circumstances. Instances of hit-and-run will only strengthen these cases/claims.

Bridgeport – Highway Crash With Injuries

Authorities responded to an accident in Bridgeport yesterday evening.

The incident occurred on the southbound side of I-95 crossing Bridgeport, around half a mile after exit 29 (off-ramp to Seaview Avenue). A vehicle crash resulted in injuries. Emergency crews have already tended to those involved in the accident. Other details have yet to be provided by officials pending an investigation into the cause of the incident.

Nighttime accidents typically have a higher chance of injuring motorists, so identifying what causes these crashes is very important to authorities so that future incidents can be avoided. That said, investigators have to know if negligence or reckless behavior is involved, so that suspects/culprits can be brought to justice.

Bridgeport – Vehicle Entrapment

A motorist was trapped inside a vehicle in Bridgeport yesterday.

Authorities received reports of an accident on Park Avenue, near its intersection with Wilson Street. Fire crews arrived on-site and discovered a car with an injured and unconscious person inside. Live electrical wires were hanging on top and making contact with the vehicle. Emergency crews have since attended to the victim. The incident is currently being investigated. Updates will be provided by officials when available.

Accidents caused by road structures and other objects outside involved vehicles have happened in the past, so authorities process these cases accordingly. Having said that, if any form of negligence is established in these cases, injured motorists have the option of consulting their legal counsel to determine their best course of action.

Bridgeport – Three Injured In Rollover Accident

Three people were wounded when their vehicle crashed in Bridgeport last Monday evening.

At around 11:42 p.m., a car traveling at a high speed collided with several vehicles then rolled over at the intersection of William and Arctic Streets. Officials responded to reports of the crash and discovered a vehicle on its left side in a residential yard. According to authorities, the vehicle had three occupants who were able to extricate themselves from the vehicle and bring themselves to the hospital for treatment of injuries. The crash is still being investigated. Officials will release more information about the circumstances surrounding the crash and its victims when appropriate.

Road accidents initiated by only one vehicle can be challenging to investigate due to the possibilities involved. Driver error and reckless behavior can be factors, but so can product/vehicle defects. Having stated these possibilities, if any form of negligence is established in these cases, injured motorists or pedestrians would have the option of filing for damages with the help of expert legal counsel.

Bridgeport – Driver Injured In Shooting

A motorist sustained gunshot injuries in Bridgeport last Sunday evening.

A few minutes before midnight, authorities received reports of gunshots in the vicinity of 200 Hallett Street. Local police responded and found an empty car with blood residue and bullet holes. Investigators immediately cordoned off and scoured the scene for evidence. A short time later, officials received reports of a wounded person entering Bridgeport Hospital. The victim was seriously hurt but remained responsive. Authorities are now investigating the connection between these two incidents. They have yet to gather information about possible suspects and will update the public when appropriate.

Investigators handling this case will consider all possibilities in establishing liability/accountability. A suspect has yet to be identified, but if any form of negligence or reckless behavior is eventually discovered, personal injuries sustained can be grounds for filing damage claims.

Bridgeport – Police Still Looking For Hit-And-Run Suspect

Police are still looking for a driver that hit a firefighter in Bridgeport.

Local officials are still looking for witnesses or informants of a June 28 incident where an off-duty firefighter was hit and seriously injured by a car at the intersection of East Main Street (Route 127) and Stratford Avenue. The 46-year-old victim was immediately brought to the hospital for treatment. Camera footage has identified the suspect vehicle, a sedan, as possibly a Toyota Corolla. Bridgeport Police are asking anyone who may have information about the suspect to contact them as soon as possible.

Authorities will always investigate hit-and-run cases until culprits/suspects are brought to justice. That said, if any form of negligence is established in these incidents, injured parties may be entitled to damages/compensation.

Injuries were reported by officials. The identities of those involved have yet to be disclosed pending an investigation of the crash. More information will be released when they become available.

Intersection accidents are investigated by authorities thoroughly because culprits/causes are not readily apparent in many cases. That said, once investigations conclude, and if negligence is established, injured parties can file for damages/compensation with the help of expert legal counsel.
