Bridgewater – Rollover Crash Update

Authorities have released more info regarding last Thursday’s rollover crash in Bridgewater.

Just before 6:00 p.m. last Thursday, 30-year-old Joshua Vanvranken of New Milford was driving a 2015 Subaru Forester on New Milford Road West and was about to turn left onto Cedar Hill Road when another vehicle crashed into him. The striking vehicle was a 2004 Ford Ranger driven by 28-year-old Renee Lynn Whiteman of N.Y. Whiteman crossed the double yellow line in the attempt to get around the signaling Subaru, crashing into that vehicle in the process. Both drivers were injured in the collision. A subsequent investigation revealed that Whiteman was not licensed at the time of the incident. Charges of driving without a license and passing in a no-passing zone have since been filed against the culprit. We will update this story as more info becomes available.

As exemplified in this case, negligent behavior can result in road crashes and serious injuries. Taking these culprits off the road is always a priority. That said, motorists who are injured due to the actions of these reckless individuals should consult legal experts so that their cases can be thoroughly evaluated.

Authorities responded to reports of a crash on Route 67 at 6:10 p.m. and immediately dispatched responders on-site. According to officials, a vehicle crashed and rolled over near Cedar Hill Road, resulting in significant damage and injuries. At least one person was transported to Danbury Hospital for treatment. No word yet on DUI, hit-and-run, or the involvement of other vehicles in the incident. A section of Route 67 was temporarily blocked following the crash. We have yet to receive confirmation that the area has been cleared. This case is under active investigation. Officials are expected to release updates in due time.

Investigating rollover crashes is crucial as these incidents almost always result in serious injuries and frequently involve reckless or negligent behavior. These are important points to remember because if we are injured on the road due to negligence, we may have the option of filing damage claims against culprits with the help of expert counsel.

Bridgewater – Victim Of Tractor Accident Has Died

A tractor accident victim has just died in Bridgewater.

In 2018, then 28-year-old Timothy Meeker Jr. was operating a tractor at the Bridgewater Country Fair, trying to tow vehicles inside the property, when he fell off the machine and was run over by one of its tires. Meeker Jr. sustained serious injuries in the incident and had to be intentionally placed in a coma following the accident. He eventually recovered. Following a spate of still-unspecified medical conditions, Meeker Jr. died on December 30. Legal cases have already been filed in connection with the incident.

A suit has already been filed against parties involved in this incident. While some of the circumstances in this case are unusual, the goal remains the same: to bring responsible parties to justice. It’s important to note that victims of road-related incidents (or their families) are never alone and should have legal options at their disposal, more so in cases where negligence is involved.
