Windsor – Rush-Hour Highway Crash

A rush-hour crash resulted in partial highway closure in Windsor yesterday.

At around 4:12 p.m., fire and EMS crews were dispatched to the southbound lanes of I-91 and discovered a vehicle accident that occurred about half a mile past Exit 40. Medical personnel quickly assisted everyone injured in the incident, while other road crews cordoned off the area to facilitate an investigation into the cause of the crash. All motorists involved have since been accounted for, and it took responders about an hour to clear all lanes of the highway. Officials are currently investigating the accident and will release more information when appropriate.

The ability of accident responders to process and clear crash sites cannot be overstated as their dedication have, in many instances, saved lives and prevented further damage. These things said, establishing liability will always be their primary objective as this can help them prevent future accidents from happening, as well as enable victims of these incidents to file for damages in cases where reckless behavior or negligence has been discovered.

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.

Cromwell – Driver In Fatal Crash Charged

A driver responsible for a highway fatality in Cromwell was arrested yesterday.

28-year-old Dayquan Hibbert of New Britain was just arrested by state officials in connection to an October 26, 2018 incident where he was involved in a crash that killed 28-year-old John William Griffin. Hibbert was driving a car southbound on I-91, with Griffin as his passenger, when he tried avoiding a traffic stop, crashing his vehicle at Exit 21. Hibbert sustained injuries in the crash, while Griffin was killed in the incident. According to authorities, Hibbert later admitted that he was driving under the influence when the crash occurred. He is currently facing multiple charges, including driving under the influence and manslaughter, and is scheduled to appear in court today.

Following this and other similar cases is useful because, as motorists, we are informed of various circumstances that surround most road incidents that result in fatalities, and what victims could be entitled to. Suffice it to say, DUI, reckless behavior and negligence are factors that can allow victims of these unfortunate events or their families to file for damages/compensation.

Middletown – Road Worker Hit By Car

A road worker was injured in an accident in Middletown last Wednesday.

27-year-old Dillon Peterson was working on the northbound side of I-91, laying down traffic cones, when two vehicles collided behind him. He was hit by one of the vehicles and sustained serious injuries. Emergency responders quickly transported him to Hartford Hospital for treatment. The driver of the car that hit him was also transported to the hospital for evaluation, while the driver of the second vehicle fled the area. Authorities are currently investigating the incident and are asking anyone who may have witnessed it to contact them as soon as possible.

Road construction/repair workers always have to deal with dangerous conditions, particularly during nighttime. Identifying errant or negligent motorists that cause accidents in these conditions is imperative so that authorities can improve road safety for everyone. That said, anyone injured in similar situations can consult legal experts to determine their best course of action.

Middletown – Highway Vehicle Accident

A highway crash occurred in Middletown late yesterday evening.

At around 8:30 p.m., emergency crews responded to the northbound lanes of I-91, at Exit 20 (Country Club Road), after receiving reports of a crash in the area. EMS crews quickly tended to motorists involved in the crash, though officials have yet to identify anyone pending an investigation. A section of the highway was cordoned off following the incident — all lanes have since been cleared. No word yet on types of vehicles involved and the extent of people’s injuries. This post will be updated as soon as more information becomes available.

Following protocol, authorities typically withhold information about road accidents when these involve serious injuries or fatalities. That said, officials will always update the public regarding the status of their investigations at appropriate times. It pays to follow these cases because we have to be aware of our legal options as motorists if ever we are involved in similar situations. Talking to legal experts can also be useful in these scenarios.

Rocky Hill – Highway Accident

A highway crash occurred in Rocky Hill yesterday evening.

At approximately 6:12 p.m., officials were alerted to a crash on the southbound lanes of I-91, near Exit 24 (Route 99/Silas Deane Highway). A still unspecified number of vehicles was involved in a crash that resulted in injuries and forced the closure of a section of the roadway. Emergency responders were immediately dispatched to the area to assist motorists involved in the crash. It took road crews less than half an hour to clear the scene. The crash is still under investigation — authorities have yet to disclose the identities of victims. Updates will be provided as soon as officials release more information.

Following protocol, emergency crews will always prioritize the safety of everyone involved in accidents over most other considerations. That said, identifying crash culprits/causes is also important and will help crash victims seek justice and find closure after these unfortunate events.

Windsor – Interstate Crash With Fatality

There were heavy delays in Windsor after a multiple-vehicle accident last Friday.

Emergency crews were dispatched to the southbound lanes of I-91 and discovered a crash involving several vehicles. According to officials, at approximately 11:45 a.m., 59-year-old Joy Deloge was driving her vehicle on the right lane when she rear-ended a Hyundai in front of her. This forced her car to hit a guardrail before swerving onto other lanes, hitting another vehicle. That car, a Ford, then crashed into a tractor-trailer. Deloge sustained critical injuries in the crash and pronounced dead at Hartford Hospital. The operator of the semi was not injured, while the drivers of the Hyundai and Ford sustained minor injuries. Authorities closed down the highway immediately after the crash to facilitate an investigation into its cause. All lanes have since been reopened, though the incident is still under investigation.

Details already released regarding this case point to possible negligence, though authorities have yet to finalize their investigation. Whatever the outcome, if they discover any form of negligence or reckless behavior, injured parties not responsible for the crash may have various legal options at their disposal.

Windsor – Vehicle Accident On Highway

An accident congested a portion of I-91 in Windsor yesterday afternoon.

At approximately 2:48 p.m., officials were alerted to a vehicle accident and immediately sent emergency crews to the southbound lanes of I-91. An accident involving a still unspecified number of vehicles occurred about half a mile past Exit 36 (Route 178/Park Avenue) and resulted in injuries. Medical personnel have already arrived at the scene to assist those affected by the crash, while other road crews have already started cleanup operations. Authorities have withheld the identities of those involved pending an investigation. They will release more details when appropriate.

In most highway accidents, broad closures are required to ensure the safety of both motorists involved in crashes and accident responders. This frequently results in delays, so clearing these sites quickly without sacrificing a thorough investigation is imperative. These things said, if officials discover DUI, reckless behavior or negligence in any of these cases, aggrieved parties may have the option of filing for damages with the help of expert legal counsel.

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.

Hartford – Highway Truck Accident

A truck was involved in a highway crash in Hartford yesterday.

The accident occurred on the southbound lanes of I-91 crossing Hartford, about half a mile after Exit 33 (Jennings Road), at approximately 4:43 p.m. Injuries were reported in the crash, and officials had to cordon off a section of the highway to facilitate cleanup operations. Road crews were able to clear the site just 45 minutes later. Authorities have yet to identify motorists involved in the incident as they are still investigating the crash. Updates will be provided when appropriate.

Highway accidents involving trucks typically result in serious injuries and delays. Improving road safety for all motorists require the accurate identification of crash causes/culprits. Another benefit of this is enabling accident victims to file for damages under appropriate circumstances and with the help of expert legal counsel.

Rocky Hill – Highway Crash

Authorities responded to a highway crash in Rocky Hill late yesterday evening.

Emergency crews were dispatched to the southbound lanes of I-91 to assist those injured in a vehicle accident. At approximately 11:35 p.m., a crash occurred near Exit 24 (Route 99), and officials had to cordon off a section of the highway to facilitate clearing operations as well as an investigation into the cause of the incident. Authorities have yet to identify the victims and will do so when appropriate.

Nighttime accidents like this can be challenging for authorities to process due to the higher risk naturally associated with evening driving. Suffice it to say, motorists involved in nighttime incidents have a much higher chance of sustaining injuries. This makes identifying the causes of these accidents a very important goal of authorities as this can help improve road safety for everyone. It can also open various avenues/options that victims of these accidents can explore with their legal counsel.

Windsor – Highway Accident

A rush-hour accident resulted in highway delays in Windsor yesterday.

The incident occurred on the southbound side of I-91 crossing Windsor, at Exit 36 (Route 178/Park Avenue), at approximately 5:00 p.m. A still unspecified number of vehicles was involved in a crash that resulted in injuries. Authorities have already dispatched emergency crews to the area, and the crash site was cleared about half an hour later. Both state and local officials were involved in investigating the incident.

Rush-hour accidents can result in heavy delays, so it’s impressive how accident crews quickly respond to and clear these incidents. That said, the safety of motorists will always be their priority, so tending to anyone injured is their first goal. Motorists injured in these situations should be aware of their options, and talking to legal experts can be very useful to them.
