Farmington – Hit-And-Run Suspect Arrested

Police just arrested a hit-and-run suspect in Farmington yesterday.

The arrest was made in connection to an accident last Saturday where a vehicle driven by 26-year-old Michael Rios of Hartford hit a motorcyclist, seriously injuring him. Instead of staying at the scene, Rios fled the area. He abandoned his vehicle on the exit 39 off ramp and was apprehended by police soon after. Rios is now facing several charges, including reckless endangerment and evading responsibility.

Instances of reckless behavior/driving or negligence causing injuries to motorists can entitle them to file for damage/compensation claims under proper circumstances. It pays to be aware of our legal rights and options if ever we are involved in similar situations in the future.

Southington – Motorcyclist Injured In Highway Crash

A motorcyclist was seriously injured in a highway accident in Southington last Saturday.

At approximately 4:45 a.m., a motorcycle rider was traveling on I-84 crossing Southington when he was hit by the vehicle behind him. He sustained a serious leg injury in the crash. Instead of stopping, the suspect just continued driving. Motorists riding in a car behind the suspect vehicle stopped and tended to the victim’s injuries. Emergency crews quickly responded to the accident and transported the victim to the hospital for further treatment. According to officials, the person who assisted the victim while waiting for help to arrive might have saved the person’s life by tying the man’s injured leg. The incident is still being investigated by authorities.

This case highlights the dedication of authorities and fellow motorists willing to help those in need. We should be aware of these examples, as well as our legal rights and options if ever we are involved in similar situations in the future.

Tolland – Culprit Identified In Highway Crash

The driver of the SUV that crashed into a state agency vehicle in Tolland has now been identified.

The incident occurred on the eastbound side of I-84 crossing Tolland, near exit 68. Last Tuesday, a 56-year-old Department of Transportation employee was climbing inside a state agency vehicle he was operating when his vehicle was struck from behind by a 2014 Nissan Murano being driven by a 65-year-old man from Massachusetts. The state employee was thrown off his vehicle and onto the pavement. He was immediately transported to Rockville General Hospital after complaining of pain in his neck, back and legs.

The victim in this case is a state employee who was injured while on duty. Regardless of that fact, people who are injured on any road, particularly when negligence or reckless behavior is involved, can be entitled to damages/compensation under appropriate circumstances.

Danbury – Hit-And-Run On The Interstate

Two vehicles were involved in a hit-and-run incident in Danbury last Thursday morning.

The incident occurred on the westbound side of I-84 crossing Danbury, just before exit 4. At approximately 3:44 a.m., a 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer collided with a 2018 Chevrolet Malibu, causing both vehicles to veer off the highway. The 41-year-old driver of the Malibu sustained injuries in the crash. The driver of the Trailblazer left the scene of the incident. 33-year-old Jesus Rosas and 34-year-old Jose Rosas, both from Ridgefield, remained with the Trailblazer and also sustained injuries. Officials had to close two lanes of the highway immediately after the incident, causing massive delays in the area. The area has since been cleared. The case is still being investigated. Authorities are asking anyone with information about the hit-and-run driver to contact them as soon as possible.
