Old Saybrook – Accident With Entrapment

A vehicle rolled over on the highway in Old Saybrook last Thursday evening.

Emergency crews responded to reports of the crash and discovered one vehicle that had rolled over on Route 9, in the area of Exit 2. One person was trapped inside the vehicle following the accident and had to be extricated by firefighters. The victim was then transported to the hospital for treatment. The identity and status of the injured motorist have yet to be disclosed by officials pending an investigation into the cause of the crash. Authorities are asking anyone who may have witnessed it to contact them as soon as possible.

Old Saybrook – Pedestrian Hit by a Motor Vehicle

An accident involving a vehicle and a pedestrian took place last Tuesday morning on Interstate 95 in the town of Old Saybrook, Middlesex County.

According to Connecticut State Police, Troop F, the involved vehicle was travelling southbound along Interstate 95, between Exits 69 and 70, when the driver saw and was unable to avoid hitting a pedestrian walking along the roadway. The pedestrian was later identified as Richard Dupre, Jr., 51, from Killingworth. Dupre died on the scene of the incident. Connecticut Police is still investigating the accident.

This incident is noteworthy because it highlights the nature of many automobile and pedestrian accidents. It’s difficult to identify who or what caused it. On one hand, the driver saw the pedestrian but was unable to avoid hitting him. Was he travelling too fast? Was he driving under the influence? While alcohol intoxication is relatively easy to identify on the spot, other substances (drugs) might not be. On the other hand, was the pedestrian under the influence and starting walking on one of the interstate lanes? Or was he simply an unfortunate victim of a careless driver?

In all of these possible scenarios, the rights of all parties involved are protected by state and federal laws, Connecticut laws in particular. It pays to be aware of your rights and what you are entitled to.

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.
