East Lyme – Charges In Fatal Motorcycle Crash

Officials just filed charges against a driver who killed a motorcyclist in East Lyme.

On July 28, 42-year-old Frank A. Barabas, Jr. was riding his motorcycle on Route 1 when he was hit by a car driven by 37-year-old Kimberly Zoller. The collision occurred in front of 516 Boston Post Road. Barabas, Jr. was killed in the crash, while Zoller was taken to the hospital for treatment. After a thorough investigation of the case, an arrest warrant for Zoller was released yesterday, and she has since posted a bond. She is facing a charge of second-degree vehicular manslaughter, with her next court date scheduled for October 24.

In many cases, investigators have to spend months investigating incidents before making their conclusions. Their dedication cannot be overstated and is obviously important if culprits are to be brought to justice. As motorists, we also need to be aware of our options if ever we are involved in similar situations. We can talk to legal experts, and they can help us pursue options that can help us cope and find closure.

If you or someone you care about was injured in an accident, you may need help navigating the complex challenges of paying for your medical bills, recouping your lost wages, and regaining your quality of life. The Connecticut attorneys with Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers can help you through this process, working to hold the responsible party accountable for the pain and suffering you have had to endure.

East Lyme – Early Morning Highway Accident

A highway accident occurred in East Lyme early yesterday morning.

The incident occurred on the northbound lanes of I-95, about half a mile before Exit 73 (Society Road). Fire and EMS crews quickly arrived at the scene and discovered a still unspecified number of vehicles involved in a crash that resulted in injuries. Medical personnel have since tended to everyone affected by the incident. The crash was first reported at approximately 6:46 a.m., and it took about an hour before road crews were able to clear the accident site. Officials are still investigating the incident and will release more information when appropriate.

Early morning/rush hour accidents tend to cause heavy delays, particularly on highways. Preventing future accidents depends on the accurate identification of crash causes/culprits so that authorities can address these factors head-on. As an additional benefit, establishing liability can also allow crash victims to file for damages in cases where negligence are discovered.

East Lyme – Motorists Injured In Highway Incident

A vehicle with two occupants collided with a tractor-trailer in East Lyme yesterday morning.

29-year-old Angel Acosta of Hamden was driving his Toyota on I-95 with 29-year-old Bianca Lopez when they collided with a tractor-trailer in the area of Exit 74. The driver of the tractor-trailer tried to change lanes just as Acosta was attempting to pass the vehicle, forcing the Toyota to hit the semi before crashing into the center barrier. Acosta sustained minor injuries and was immediately brought to Lawrence + Memorial Hospital. His passenger, Lopez, was trapped inside their vehicle and had to be extricated by fire crews before being airlifted (LifeStar) to Hartford Hospital for treatment for serious injuries. The driver of the tractor-trailer did not stop after the collision, and officials believe the operator did not notice what happened behind him.

LifeStar support is often requested when accidents occur in inaccessible areas or, more often than not, in incidents with serious/critical injuries. Authorities need to accurately identify the causes of these collisions so that future incidents can be avoided. The identification of culprits also means victims can explore various options related to filing for damages with the help of their legal counsel.

East Lyme – Fatal Injuries In Motorcycle Crash

A crash in East Lyme last Sunday resulted in one fatality.

Officials cordoned off Boston Post Road (Route 1), between North Bride Brook and Spring Rock Roads, to investigate a crash between a car and a motorcycle. 42-year-old Frank A. Barabas, Jr. of Montville was riding his motorcycle when he collided with a car driven by a 37-year-old East Lyme resident. Barabas sustained serious injuries in the crash and was pronounced dead at the scene, while the driver of the car was transported to Lawrence+ Memorial Hospital for evaluation and treatment. Authorities have since cleared Route 1, though the accident is still being investigated. Further updates will be provided when appropriate.

The risk of incurring injuries in road incidents is significantly higher for many of us who ride motorcycles, so we should all be aware of our rights and options if ever we are involved in any accident. Consulting a legal expert should help expand our knowledge when it comes to dealing with these unfortunate events.

East Lyme – Interstate Accident

Reports came in of a vehicle accident in East Lyme yesterday evening.

Authorities responded to reports of a crash on the northbound side of I-95 at approximately 5:26 p.m. The incident occurred about half a mile after exit 73 (Society Road) and involved a yet unspecified number of vehicles. Injuries were reported, and emergency crews were able to address those and clear the site less than 10 minutes after arriving. Officials will release more information, including the identities of those involved, when appropriate.

Accident investigators start their work as soon as they arrive at any scene so that they can promptly identify causes/culprits. Doing this as quickly as possible is important as it enables those who are injured to evaluate their legal options, particularly when it comes to filing for damages in cases where negligence or reckless behavior is established.

If you or someone you care about was injured in an accident, you may need help navigating the complex challenges of paying for your medical bills, recouping your lost wages, and regaining your quality of life.

East Lyme – Motorcycle Accident Sent Person To Hospital

A motorcycle accident in East Lyme last Saturday evening is currently being investigated by authorities.

A rider was brought to the hospital by emergency crews after a crash on Route 156 (Main Street), near the East Lyme-Waterford town line. The victim sustained serious injuries in the accident, was first brought to an area hospital, but was then transported by LifeStar to Hartford Hospital for further treatment. According to officials, no other vehicle was involved in the crash, although they are still investigating all possibilities in the incident. Additional information will be disclosed when appropriate. Authorities are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to contact them as soon as possible.

Investigating single-vehicle accidents, particularly those involving motorcycles, can be challenging because culprits/causes are not readily apparent. That said, product/vehicle defects, among other factors, have played a part in many motorcycle accidents in the past. If any form of negligence is discovered in these cases, injured motorists may be entitled to damages/compensation under appropriate situations.

If you or someone you care about was injured in an accident, you may need help navigating the complex challenges of paying for your medical bills, recouping your lost wages, and regaining your quality of life. The Connecticut attorneys with Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers can help you through this process, working to hold the responsible party accountable for the pain and suffering you have had to endure.

East Lyme – Pedestrian Hospitalized After Accident

A pedestrian was seriously injured in East Lyme yesterday morning.

The incident occurred at 91 Riverview Road where officials believe a vehicle leaving the complex in the area hit a pedestrian. Local police were informed of the incident and immediately requested LifeStar support. The victim was airlifted to Yale-New Haven Hospital for treatment. The area around the scene was closed by officials while they investigated the incident. It has since been reopened. Additional information will be provided by authorities when they become available.

It goes without saying everyone involved in road incidents should stay at the scene until authorities arrive. That said, injuries caused by reckless or negligent behavior can be strong grounds for filing damage/compensation claims. We should be aware of our legal options in these types of situations.
