Ledyard – Road Closure Following Crash

A section of Route 117 in Ledyard was blocked off following a vehicle accident early yesterday morning.

The incident was reported to state and local officials at approximately 1:50 a.m. Emergency crews sent to Route 117 (Center Groton Road) discovered a single-vehicle crash at its intersection with Lambtown Road. The area was cordoned off to allow medical personnel to assist motorists injured in the incident. No word yet on entrapment, hit-and-run, or the number of affected individuals. The crash site has since been cleared, and the case is currently under investigation. Updates will be provided when officials release more info.

Single-vehicle accidents with no immediately discernible causes have to be investigated thoroughly for driver negligence and possible vehicle failures/defects. Of course, authorities will always look at all possibilities before making any conclusion, and bringing responsible parties to justice will depend on this. That said, victims of these events can pursue their own claims against suspects/culprits, particularly in cases where negligence has been discovered.

Ledyard – Motorcycle Crash Causes Fatal Injuries

A man died after a motorcycle crash in Ledyard last Monday.

68-year-old Antonio Barboza of Norwich was riding his motorcycle on Avery Hill Road when he crashed. He sustained serious injuries in the accident but remained responsive when emergency crews arrived. He was immediately transported to The William W. Backus Hospital where he died soon after. According to authorities, Barboza was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, and no other vehicle was involved in the incident. The case is still under investigation. Officials will release more information when appropriate.

Single-vehicle accidents, a motorcycle in this case, requires studying product/vehicle defects as possible causes. There have been many instances of this happening in the past. That said, if any form of negligence is established, victims or their families may be entitled to file for damage/compensation claims.
