Darien – Another Crash Victim Dies

Another victim of last weekend’s highway crash in Darien was just pronounced dead.

19-year-old Chase Ortiz of Norwalk, as well as other passengers, were seriously injured when the vehicle they were riding in swerved off the northbound lanes of I-95, just past Exit 9, hitting a tree before coming to a stop. Ortiz was pronounced dead by his family last Tuesday evening. He is the second fatality in the incident after another passenger was pronounced dead at the crash site. Other survivors of the crash remain in serious condition. Authorities are still investigating the incident and will release more updates as they become available.

This unfortunate event highlights many of the circumstances that follow highway accidents, particularly those involving high-speed impacts with other vehicles or, in this case, roadside structures. These crashes frequently result in serious injuries, so identifying the causes of these accidents is imperative so that victims or their next of kin can seek justice and find closure.

Darien – Highway Crash Update

Authorities just released an update regarding last Sunday’s highway crash in Darien.

Officials have identified the victims of the single-vehicle crash on the northbound lanes of I-95. A Volkswagen Passat suddenly swerved off the roadway between Exits 9 and 10, crashing into a tree before coming to a stop. The vehicle had five occupants when the accident occurred. 19-year-old Victor Emanuel Deleon of Norwalk sustained critical injuries in the crash and was pronounced dead at the scene. 19-year-old Indira S. Rivera, the driver of the vehicle, sustained serious injuries and was taken to the hospital for treatment. 19-year-old Chase Ortiz, 20-year-old Julius C. Beau, and 20-year-old Jordan A. Palmer also sustained serious injuries and were brought to the hospital for treatment. The crash remains under investigation. Authorities will release more updates as their investigation progresses.

Officials handling this case have yet to identify the cause of the crash. In the absence of immediately obvious causes, other factors, such as product defects, might also be considered. Having said that, and whatever the outcome of the investigation, if authorities discover any form of negligence, injured parties not responsible for the incident can consult legal experts to pursue options that can help them find closure.

At around 9:16 p.m., fire and EMS crews were dispatched to the southbound lanes of I-95 after receiving reports of a crash that occurred about a quarter of a mile past Exit 10 (Ledge Road).

The site was cleared at approximately 10:01 p.m. Officials have yet to specify the number of people and vehicles affected by the incident — an investigation is ongoing.

This will help authorities improve road safety for everyone, as well as allow crash victims to seek justice and find closure.
