Woodbridge – Fatal Crash Update
Authorities just released more details regarding last weekend’s fatal crash in Woodbridge.
Tim Smith, Orange Fire Marshall, was traveling home after responding to a fire report when his vehicle crashed on Route 69 near Downs Road. According to officials, his vehicle veered off the roadway and crashed into a tree. Smith sustained critical injuries in the crash and was declared dead soon after. There are no indications that other vehicles were involved in the incident. Authorities are still investigating the accident and requesting possible witnesses to contact them as soon as possible.
In the absence of driver error or the involvement of other vehicles in this type of crash, authorities will always look at vehicle failures/defects as a possible cause. Of course, investigators will study all angles before making any conclusion. This process will not only allow the state to file appropriate cases against suspects/culprits, it will also enable victims or their next-of-kin to pursue various legal avenues against these liable parties.
