Hartford – Guilty Plea In Pedestrian Incident

A motorist just pleaded guilty to charges related to a pedestrian crash in Hartford.

At around 10:45 p.m. on September 3, 2018, 47-year-old Chante Tucker was attempting to cross the intersection of Garden Street and Albany Avenue (Route 44) when a Chevrolet Malibu, driven by 25-year-old Keyvon Cook, hit her. Tucker was thrown about 100 feet from the car and was fatally wounded. She died the following day at the hospital. Instead of stopping, Cook immediately fled the scene. Last Tuesday, he pleaded guilty to charges of making a false statement to police and evading responsibility. His sentencing is scheduled for December 17.

While in many instances the process of bringing crash suspects to justice can take months, we can be assured that authorities will always exhaust all measures to complete their investigations and establish accountability. This process can also benefit crash victims or their families in other ways. For example, if investigators discover negligent behavior in specific cases, this might allow aggrieved parties to file for damages as an effective way of finding closure after these traumatic events.

Hartford – Roadside Stabbing

Two people were hospitalized following a stabbing incident in Hartford yesterday evening.

A few minutes past 6:00 p.m., local police responded to an incident at a gas station on Maple Avenue and found a man who was stabbed. Officers found the suspect just yards away and was able to apprehend him on Whitmore Street. According to reports, both individuals were injured in the incident and were taken to the hospital for treatment. Authorities have yet to describe the circumstances preceding the incident and are still investigating. This post will be updated as soon as we receive more information.

Despite the obvious presence of a culprit, officials will still investigate this incident, studying all angles, with the goal of accurately establishing liability. Suffice it to say, discovering reckless behavior or negligence may allow the aggrieved party to seek damages if legal experts deem it as an appropriate course of action.

Hartford – Fatality In Repair Shop Accident

A car mechanic died from critical injuries in a shop accident in Hartford last Monday morning.

22-year-old Christian Soto-Carrasquillo, a car mechanic, was at Gurabo Auto Sales, located on 147 Franklin Avenue when a vehicle he was working on fell on him. The car was on a lift and dropped without warning. According to police, Soto-Carrasquillo was eventually pronounced dead due to the severity of his injuries. An initial inspection of the accident scene points to an improperly positioned lift arm as a possible cause of the incident. State officials, along with Hartford police, are currently investigating the accident and will release more details when appropriate.

Authorities handling this case will look at all angles/possibilities with the goal of accurately establishing liability. It’s important to take note of this because if they discover any inappropriate behavior or negligence, the family of the victim may have options at their disposal. Legal experts can help inform them of their rights and a suitable course of action.

Hartford – Fatal Scooter Crash

A scooter rider died from crash injuries in Hartford yesterday.

The still-unidentified motorist was riding in the area of 81 Wethersfield Avenue when he collided with a car. The victim sustained critical injuries in the crash and was pronounced dead soon after. The driver of the second vehicle was apprehended and taken into custody by responding officers. The incident forced the closure of Wethersfield Avenue, between Wyllys and Annawan Streets, to allow investigators and cleanup crews to do their work. The identities of involved parties have yet to be disclosed by authorities pending an investigation. This post will be updated as soon as more information becomes available.

State and local officials are constantly thinking of ways to improve road safety for everyone. Identifying the causes of accidents and other road-related incidents is an important step towards that goal. Not only that, establishing liability can also benefit victims of accidents as it allows them to pursue avenues that can support them financially and help them find closure. Filing for damages/compensation is a good example.

Hartford – Missing Motorist After Multi-Vehicle Crash

State and local officials responded to an intersection crash in Hartford yesterday morning.

The accident occurred at the intersection of Broad Street and Farmington Avenue at approximately 10:30 a.m. Emergency crews were quickly dispatched to the area and discovered three vehicles that had collided, causing delays in the area and injuring one person. The victim was immediately transported to the hospital for treatment. Officials also reported one person, the driver of one of the involved vehicles, as missing from the area. The suspect left a Ford Focus with heavy damage. The crash is currently under investigation. Further updates will be provided when appropriate.

Instances of hit-and-run will, in practically all scenarios, aggravate cases against suspects/culprits.

Hartford – Fatal Motorcycle Crash

A motorcycle rider was killed in an accident in Hartford last Tuesday evening.

The victim was identified as 55-year-old Charles Holder. According to authorities, Holder was riding his 2006 Suzuki motorcycle on West Service Road that evening when he lost control of the bike, crashing into a guardrail. Holder was thrown off the vehicle, sustaining critical injuries in the process. Officials have yet to determine if another vehicle or a pedestrian was involved in the incident. The case is still under investigation, and authorities will release more information as soon as they become available.

Evidence already available in this case is suggesting that the victim was not wearing any safety equipment when the crash occurred. Having said that, investigators will study the case thoroughly before making a conclusion. Suffice it to say, if they discover negligence not associated with the victim, his family may have the option of filing for damages if their legal counsel deems it appropriate.

Hartford – Motorcycle Crash Victim Identified

Officials just identified the victim of last Saturday’s motorcycle crash in Hartford.

21-year-old Pedro Torres of Hartford was riding a 2014 Suzuki SFV650 with a 19-year-old passenger when they crashed at the intersection of Locust and East Elliot Streets.

Authorities have yet to release the identity of the female passenger, and they also disclosed that the motorcycle they were riding was declared stolen last month. The crash is still under investigation. Further updates will be provided as they become available.

Officials are still investigating this crash and have yet to determine the cause of the accident.
