New Haven – Intersection Rollover Crash

Local officials were alerted to a rollover crash in New Haven last Thursday evening.

Firefighters and paramedics were dispatched to the intersection of East Grand and Quinnipiac Avenues last Thursday after two vehicles collided in the area. According to reports, one of the involved vehicles rolled over in the crash, resulting in entrapment and injuries. The scene was quickly blocked off to allow responders to assist everyone involved. As of posting time, all motorists affected by the incident have been accounted for and assisted by authorities. The crash is currently under investigation and officials will release updates when appropriate.

While it doesn’t happen as frequently as it used to, rollover crashes and vehicle fires still occur despite the relative safety touted in all modern vehicles. This can be attributed to the severity of some of these incidents, but the possibility of product defects and negligence should not be overlooked. Of course, investigators will always look at all possible causes to achieve their goal of accurately establishing liability. This will not only bring culprits to justice but also allow victims to explore legal options that can help them find closure.

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.

New Haven – Rollover Crash

Local officials were alerted to an intersection crash in New Haven last Monday.

Authorities dispatched emergency crews to the intersection of Orange and Humprey Streets after receiving reports of a rollover crash in the area. According to police, two vehicles collided at the scene, forcing one vehicle to roll over to its left side. Injuries were reported in the incident, and this prompted officials to call in EMS crews to the site. The area surrounding the crashed vehicles was cordoned off following the incident — it has since been cleared. Authorities are investigating the crash and will release more information as their investigation progresses.

In most scenarios, rollover accidents result in injuries to motorists, even with the inclusion of many safety features in almost all modern vehicles. It is reasonable then to assume that identifying who or what causes these incidents can help authorities implement changes that will improve road safety for everyone. Also, establishing liability can benefit parties injured in these incidents by allowing them to file for damages in certain cases.

New Haven – Man Wounded By Gunshot

A man was seriously injured by gunshot in New Haven last Sunday afternoon.

At approximately 5:46 p.m., officers were dispatched to Brookside Avenue and discovered a 22-year-old man injured on the side of the road between Level Street and Wilmot Road. According to responders, the victim sustained a gunshot wound from a still unidentified assailant. He was immediately transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital for treatment where he is currently listed as stable. Authorities are currently investigating the case and are asking anyone who may have information about the incident to contact them as soon as possible.

While authorities will always exercise due diligence in investigating incidents and bringing culprits to justice, in some cases they require the assistance of the public in providing evidence or any information pertinent to these cases. It’s important for us to take note of this because establishing accountability benefits all sectors of society. It helps the law enforcement community improve road safety for everyone, and it entitles victims of these incidents to various options they can explore with expert legal counsel.

New Haven – Multiple Injuries In Bus Accident

A school bus with passengers collided with a car in New Haven yesterday afternoon.

At around 3:45 p.m., a school bus taking 17 students home from Ross Woodward School was traveling south on Middletown Avenue when a vehicle traveling north suddenly swerved onto its path. This resulted in a head-on collision between the two vehicles. Of the 17 students riding the bus, 6 were taken to the hospital for evaluation and treatment. Officials have yet to identify the driver of the second vehicle and whether or not the motorist was injured. The incident is currently under investigation. This post will be updated as soon as officials release more information.

Head-on collisions typically result in serious injuries. Authorities will always exhibit due diligence in establishing accountability in these cases as this can help them address issues and improve road safety for everyone. That said, if investigators discover negligence, reckless behavior or DUI in these incidents, injured parties may have various legal options that can help them find closure. Under appropriate circumstances, this can include filing for compensation/damages.

New Haven – Heavy Delays After Highway Accident

A highway crash in New Haven last Saturday resulted in heavy delays and injuries.

Authorities dispatched emergency responders to the southbound lanes of I-95 at around 4:25 p.m. to assist motorists injured in a crash. According to officials, the accident forced the closure of three left lanes, causing massive delays between Exits 51 and 48. Road crews quickly started cleanup operations — all southbound lanes were cleared by 5:15 p.m. Authorities have yet to disclose the number of motorists and vehicles affected by the crash pending an investigation. Updates will be provided as soon as more information is released by officials.

Authorities are required to process and clear accident scenes quickly to avoid collateral effects such as, in this case, heavy delays. That said, investigating these incidents remain a priority for officials as this can help victims seek justice and find closure. Identifying culprits can also allow aggrieved parties to file for damages if their legal counsel deems it as an appropriate course of action.

New Haven – Accident Involving ATV

A motorist was seriously injured in an intersection crash in New Haven last Thursday.

Authorities dispatched emergency crews to the intersection of Legion Avenue and Ella T Grasso Boulevard (Route 10) at around 5:00 p.m. after receiving reports of a crash. According to responders, a male motorist operating a quad ATV collided with another vehicle. The rider sustained serious injuries and was found lying on the road. The victim was quickly attended to by EMS personnel. The driver of the second vehicle remained at the scene and has cooperated with officials. The crash is still under investigation. Authorities have yet to identify the victim and will do so, as well as release other pertinent information, when appropriate.

Collisions frequently occur between small vehicles (ATVs and motorcycles) and other vehicles, and these tend to result in serious injuries and heavy damage. Identifying the causes of these unfortunate events is, obviously, an important goal for accident investigators. That said, motorists injured in these scenarios will have various options at their disposal if authorities discover DUI, reckless behavior or negligence. Victims can discuss these options with legal experts so that their best course of action can be determined.

New Haven – Motorist Arrested After Fatal Crash

A driver was arrested following an intersection crash in New Haven last Saturday that resulted in a fatality.

At approximately 5:29 p.m., a still-unidentified motorcycle operator was at the intersection of Sylvan and Winthrop Avenues when he was hit by an Acura sedan driven by 42-year-old Jerry Boucicault of New Haven. The rider sustained critical injuries in the crash and was pronounced dead soon after. Boucicault has since been arrested by officials and is currently facing a charge of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence (DUI). He is scheduled to be arraigned today. Authorities will release more information about the incident when appropriate.

Road accidents that result in fatalities are investigated thoroughly to determine if negligence or reckless behavior could be involved. Aside from these factors, incidents involving DUI will only aggravate cases against suspects/culprits. It’s also worth remembering that motorists who are injured because of these elements may be entitled to file for damages. Talking to legal experts should be a good first step identifying a suitable course of action.

New Haven – Officer Injured In Hit-And-Run

A police officer was injured in a pedestrian incident in New Haven last Saturday evening.

The incident occurred on Long Wharf Drive. At approximately 10:15 p.m., a local police officer was hit by a passing car and sustained injuries. According to officials, instead of stopping, the vehicle fled the area. The victim has since been tended to by medical personnel. The identity of the police officer has yet to be disclosed pending an investigation. Updates will be provided as more information becomes available.

Authorities will always look at all possibilities when investigating pedestrian incidents, including reckless behavior, DUI and other forms of negligence. We should be aware of our options as pedestrians if ever we or our loved ones are involved in similar situations. In cases involving negligence, we may have the option of filing for damages if deemed appropriate by legal experts.

New Haven – Two-Vehicle Intersection Crash

At least one person was injured in a junction crash in New Haven last Saturday.

At around noon, local authorities were alerted to a crash that occurred at the intersection of Derby Avenue (Route 34) and Ella T Grasso Boulevard. Responders quickly arrived at the scene and discovered at least one person injured in a two-vehicle crash. The victim was quickly transported to the hospital for treatment. Officials cordoned off the area for several hours — the scene has since been cleared. The incident is still under investigation. Updates will be provided as they become available.

Unfortunately, intersection collisions happen quite frequently in busy areas, and these incidents almost always result in injuries. Preventing future crashes depend on the accurate identification of causes/culprits so that authorities can address these issues effectively. As an additional benefit, establishing liability can enable victims of these incidents to file for damages under appropriate circumstances and with the help of expert legal counsel.

New Haven – Highway Motorcycle Accident

A motorcyclist was seriously hurt in a highway crash in New Haven early yesterday morning.

The incident occurred on the northbound lanes of Route 15, near Exit 59. At around 5:45 a.m., 29-year-old Joao Maiolino was riding his 2009 Harley Davidson northbound on Route 15 when a car struck him. 41-year-old Kimberly Ann Slosek was driving her vehicle on the southbound side when she suddenly attempted to use an emergency u-turn slot. She struck Maiolino’s motorcycle when she entered the northbound lanes. Maiolino sustained serious injuries in the collision and was immediately transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital, while Slosek refused medical support. The crash is currently being investigated. Authorities are asking possible witnesses to contact them as soon as possible.

The details already available in this case seem to indicate reckless behavior. That said, investigators will look at all possible angles before making a conclusion. If they establish negligence or reckless behavior, injured parties in this and other similar incidents may have the option of filing for damages as determined by their legal counsel.
