West Haven – Pedestrian Accident
A pedestrian was hit by a car in West Haven last Friday evening.
Authorities are currently investigating a pedestrian accident that occurred on Boston Post Road at the Front Avenue intersection at approximately 8:29 p.m. A male pedestrian was trying to cross that intersection when a vehicle traveling east, tagged as a Mercedes-Benz, hit him. The victim sustained fatal injuries and was immediately transported to the hospital. He was later pronounced dead by hospital officials. The incident was not reported as a hit-and-run — the driver of the vehicle stopped after the accident.
Pedestrian incidents that result in injuries or death can be grounds for compensation claims, either by victims or families. These cases are investigated by authorities to determine causes, and in cases of DUI or negligence, establish liability.
