A driver seemingly lost control of a pickup truck in Norwich, resulting in a crash yesterday afternoon.
At around 4:01 p.m., local authorities received reports of a truck that crashed in the area around 154 West Town Street and sent responders to the area. According to officials, a driver in a pickup truck was traveling west on that road when he/she was observed experiencing a medical emergency while driving. The vehicle suddenly swerved off the roadway, crashing into several vehicles, including a school bus, before coming to rest in front of a fuel station. Emergency crews immediately transported the victim to William H. Backus Hospital for treatment. The patient is currently in serious condition. Authorities are currently investigating the incident and will release more information, including the identity of the victim, as their investigation progresses.
While the circumstances in this case point to a medical condition as the cause of the crash, investigators will still study all possibilities before making any conclusion. This is obviously in line with accident protocols. Having said that, if authorities discover any form of negligence not associated with the victim, he/she may have the option of filing for damages as deemed appropriate by legal experts.
