Mansfield – Motorists Airlifted Following Crash

Motorists were seriously injured in a multi-vehicle crash in Mansfield last Friday.

Authorities responded to the intersection of Storrs and Chaffeeville Roads after receiving reports of a crash in the area. Three vehicles collided at the scene, resulting in serious injuries that prompted officials to call in LifeStar support. A victim was transported to the hospital via ambulance, while another was airlifted to an unspecified area hospital. Road crews have since removed all involved vehicles from the crash site. The case is still under active investigation.

LifeStar support is frequently requested in cases of critical injuries or incidents in less-accessible areas. Whatever the reason, this is typically a strong indicator of the severity of these accidents. Because of this, identifying the causes of these incidents is crucial as it will allow both the state and aggrieved parties to pursue legal avenues against suspects/culprits.

Mansfield – Vehicle Crashes Into Tree

A female driver was injured when her vehicle smashed into a tree in Mansfield last Sunday.

At approximately 5:00 p.m., local authorities were alerted to an accident on Maple Road. According to reports, a vehicle with a female driver crashed into a roadside tree near Davis Road. Firefighters and paramedics quickly arrived at the scene and assisted the injured motorist. She was then transported to Windham Community Memorial Hospital for further treatment.

The crash is still under investigation, and officials will release more info as their investigation progresses.

Whatever the outcome, if officials discover negligence, injured parties (including drivers) not responsible for these crashes may have legal options they can explore and pursue with the help of expert legal counsel.

Mansfield – Car Crash Causes Power Outage

A car hit a utility pole last Friday morning in Mansfield, causing a power interruption in the area.

The incident occurred at 2:57 a.m. on Pollack Road. State Police reported that a 2015 Mercedes-Benz SLK 250, driven by a 22-year-old woman, veered to the right shoulder and hit a utility pole. The driver was not injured in the crash. Maintenance workers were immediately called in to fix the damaged electrical equipment, and the road had to be closed for most of that day.

Automobile accidents sometimes cause property damage, and in this case, public services were interrupted temporarily. No one was injured in this incident, fortunately. However, in cases where reckless driving or negligence can be established, injuries sustained by parties involved can be grounds for personal injury claims.
