Stratford – Pedestrian Injured In Accident

A pedestrian was struck by a car in Stratford last Saturday afternoon.

Authorities received reports of the accident at around 2:00 p.m. Emergency responders were dispatched to Barnum Avenue Cutoff, just in front of the Burlington Coat Factory, and discovered a pedestrian who sustained a leg injury after getting hit by a passing car. No word yet on whether or not the offending vehicle fled the area. EMS teams were immediately requested on-site and have since tended to the injured person. The case is currently under investigation. Officials will release more info when appropriate.

Officials have yet to identify anyone involved in the incident and whether or not this is a hit-and-run case. This is worth highlighting because fleeing from accident sites will only exacerbate cases against suspects. That said, it pays to be aware of our rights as pedestrians if ever we are involved in similar situations. With the help of expert counsel, instances of negligent behavior may allow victims to pursue legal cases against suspects.

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.

Stratford – Highway Vehicle Crash

A car crash blocked off a portion of Route 15 North in Stratford yesterday evening.

The incident was reported at approximately 8:03 p.m. and occurred almost half a mile past Exit 53 (Route 110/River Road). No word yet on the number of vehicles involved in the incident, but injuries were reported and EMS crews were requested on-site. The scene was eventually cleared of all obstructions, with all affected motorists accounted for and tended to by responders. The incident is currently under investigation. Officials will release more info when appropriate.

Accidents on major/arterial roads such as Route 15 can result in delays, requiring crash responders to process and clear these sites as quickly as possible. That said, collecting evidence is an integral part of this process, allowing authorities to identify culprits so that they can be taken off the road, as well as enabling injured parties to seek legal help so that they can find closure.

Stratford – Highway Crash

An accident blocked off a portion of the highway in Stratford late yesterday evening.

A crash occurred on the northbound lanes of I-95, about a fifth of a mile before Exit 33 (Ferry Boulevard), at approximately 9:30 p.m. Emergency crews dispatched to the crash site discovered injuries after a vehicle accident involving a still-unspecified number of vehicles. Paramedics were called in to assist those affected by the incident — all motorists involved have since been accounted for. Authorities are investigating the cause of the incident and have yet to identify anyone pending the results of their inquiry. This story will be updated as soon as officials release more info.

Authorities will always follow established protocols when dealing with road accidents. The first goal would always be to secure crash sites so that involved parties can be assisted properly, followed by a thorough investigation of these incidents. The second point is of particular interest to aggrieved parties because identifying accident culprits will allow them to explore legal options that can help them cope and find closure.

Stratford – Store Customer Injured In Crash

A car crashed into a commercial building in Stratford yesterday, injuring one person.

According to Stratford police, the incident occurred before 12:00 p.m. and involved one vehicle with a still-unspecified number of occupants. The vehicle crashed into a Big Y store located on Hawley Lane through the front bay door. A store customer was injured in the crash and was immediately tended to by responding medical personnel before being taken to the hospital. No word yet on whether or not any occupant in the car was injured. The crash is currently under investigation. This post will be updated as soon as more info becomes available.

Officials will investigate this case to determine if any form of ill-intent was involved. In the absence of this cause, other possibilities will also be explored. It’s an important distinction to make because the involvement of reckless or negligent behavior can allow injured parties to study and pursue various legal avenues that can help them cope and find closure, including the option to seek damages.

Stratford – Highway Truck Accident

A truck figured in a crash on the highway in Stratford late yesterday evening.

Authorities were alerted to the incident at around 10:09 p.m. and immediately sent responders to the southbound lanes of I-95. Emergency crews discovered a truck that crashed about a quarter of a mile before Exit 32 (Linden Avenue). The area was immediately cordoned off to allow medical personnel to assist motorists injured in the incident. No word yet on the number of vehicles involved in the crash, but a portion of the highway was blocked due to the accident. It took road crews about 50 minutes to clear the site of all obstructions. The accident is currently under investigation, and officials will release updates when appropriate.

It’s only appropriate for authorities to block off crash sites so that involved/injured parties can be assisted by medical personnel. It also allows investigators to collect evidence that can help officials establish accountability. That last point is particularly beneficial to victims of these incidents because it will allow them, under proper circumstances, to pursue legal options that can help them find closure post-accident.

Stratford – Charges Against Reckless Driver

A New Jersey man was just arrested in connection with an accident in Stratford that resulted in multiple injuries.

25-year-old Jesse Garcia-Mercado surrendered to local police after an arrest warrant was issued against him. Garcia-Mercado was driving one of two minivans involved in a crash on Route 110 (Main Street) last July that resulted in multiple injuries. A total of 13 people, including several children, were taken to the hospital following the head-on collision. Garcia-Mercado is currently facing multiple charges of assault, third-degree assault, and failure to wear a seatbelt, as well as individual charges of tailgating, risk of injury to a minor, and reckless driving.

This case highlights many of the details and circumstances that surround road accidents that result in serious injuries. In many of these situations, authorities would discover reckless behavior or negligence on the part of specific individuals, mostly drivers. It pays to take note of this and other similar cases because they inform us of our rights as motorists. We have options at our disposal if ever we are involved/injured in accidents. We just have to remember that there are legal experts who can help us cope with these unfortunate events.

Stratford – Car-Motorcycle Collision

A motorcycle collided with a car in Stratford yesterday evening.

At approximately 9:11 p.m., authorities were alerted to a crash in the area of 690 Lordship Boulevard.

EMS crews were called in to assist everyone affected by the incident, while other crews immediately cordoned off the area. No word yet on other details in the crash and officials have yet to identify anyone involved in the incident. This post will be updated as soon as authorities release more information.

State and local officials are always studying ways of improving road safety for everyone. Because of this goal, identifying crash causes/culprits is important as a data-gathering process.

As a secondary benefit, motorists who are injured in incidents involving reckless behavior or negligence may have the option of filing for damages/compensation as determined by their legal counsel.

Stratford – Highway Vehicle Accident

A vehicle accident closed a section of the highway in Stratford yesterday.

At around 4:58 p.m., emergency crews responded to the northbound lanes of Route 15 after receiving reports of a crash in the area. According to responders, an unspecified number of vehicles was involved in an accident about a quarter of a mile before Exit 54 (Milford Connector) that resulted in injuries. Medical personnel quickly attended to everyone affected by the incident, while other crews started cleanup operations. All lanes were cleared less than an hour later. Officials have yet to identify anyone involved in the crash pending an investigation. Updates will be provided as soon as they become available.

Promptly clearing accident sites on highways is always an important objective for emergency responders. They do this without compromising on another important goal: identifying crash causes accurately. This point is particularly important to us motorists because if ever we are injured in similar situations, establishing accountability can help us seek justice and, under ideal circumstances, file for compensation/damages.

Stratford – Vehicle Fire On Highway

A car burst into flames in Stratford last Saturday.

The incident occurred on the southbound lanes of Route 15 crossing Stratford, between Exits 53 and 52. Authorities received reports of the accident a few minutes after 4:00 p.m. and immediately dispatched fire and EMS crews to the area. A car with several occupants burst into flames on the highway. Injuries were reported, but everyone was able to get out of the vehicle before it was totally consumed by the fire. Medical personnel have since tended to those involved in the accident. Officials are still investigating the cause of the accident. Further updates will be provided as soon as they are made available.

Modern vehicles have various features/equipment that make them very safe for motorists.
