Columbia – Motorcycle Crash

A motorcycle figured in a serious accident in Columbia.

Emergency teams were dispatched to the intersection of Middletown Road and Pine Street Monday after authorities received reports of a crash in the area.

LifeStar support was requested and the junction was blocked off to allow responders to safely process the site. Officials have not identified anyone yet and are still investigating the incident. This story will be updated as new info becomes available.

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.

Bridgeport – Man Trapped After Motorcycle Crash

A man was trapped after a motorcycle crash in Bridgeport yesterday.

A motorcycle collided with a minivan at around 12 noon, leaving the motorcyclist trapped under the rear bumper of the vehicle. The accident occurred at the intersection of Fairfield and Hancock Avenues. Authorities arrived at the scene to assist and reported that the trapped man was able to free himself after several minutes. He sustained minor injuries in the collision.

Griswold – Motorcycle Crash Causing Serious Injuries

A man sustained serious injuries in a crash in Griswold last Monday evening.

At around 7:45 p.m., 38-year-old Javier Dario Santiago was riding his motorcycle westbound on Route 201 crossing Griswold, and close to Hopeville Pond State Park, when his motorcycle swerved to the opposite lane of the road. A Kia Sedona with two occupants was moving eastbound and was hit by the motorcycle. The driver and passenger of the car sustained minor injuries and were immediately transported to Backus Hospital for treatment. On the other hand, Santiago sustained serious injuries after he was thrown off the motorcycle due to the crash. A rescue helicopter was called in and transported Santiago to Rhode Island Hospital.

Motorcycle accidents like this one usually result in serious injuries to riders, and sometimes, other parties or vehicles.

Thompson – Motorcycle Crash Results In Hospitalization

Last Saturday evening, a man was hospitalized when he crashed his motorcycle in Thompson.

The rider, identified as 24-year-old Jonathan Windsor Williams of Putnam, was riding his 2011 Harley Davidson XL1200X on the southbound lane of Ballard Road when he lost control of his vehicle. At around 8:10 p.m., the motorcycle fell onto its right side and slid near the intersection of Ballard Road and Azud Road. According to authorities, Williams sustained minor injuries and was transported to the Day Kimball Hospital for treatment. Officials said that while there were no witnesses to the crash, Williams admitted he was traveling too fast and accepted responsibility for the incident. An investigation at the incident scene confirmed that Williams was at fault and was issued an infraction for overspeeding. The motorcycle has since been towed from the scene.

The suspect in this case admitted his fault, thereby concluding the case. It’s fortunate that other motorists or pedestrians were not present or hurt in the incident. Otherwise, and particularly in cases where suspects are considered negligent or DUI, they can be made liable for personal injury claims.

Tolland – Motorcycle Crash With Minor Injuries

Last Saturday, a man riding a motorcycle figured in an accident, causing injuries.

Connecticut State Police responded to the crash report at around 7:00 p.m. According to them, the motorcyclist had been ejected from the motorcycle he was riding at the vicinity of the Tolland Stage Road and Burbank Road intersection. 26-year-old Nicolas Levesque from Monson, MA was quickly transported to the St. Francis Hospital for treatment. He only sustained minor injuries.

It is fortunate that the rider in this case only sustained minor injuries. That said, the higher risk that motorcycle riders have to accept in their regular commute means they need to be aware of their legal rights and obligations as riders. For example, motorcycle accidents caused by improper road structures or deficient road maintenance should be enough grounds for an injury claim. A legal expert in this field should inform you of your entitlements.
