Cheshire – Crash Victim Identified

Authorities just released an update regarding last Friday’s head-on collision in Cheshire.

Three people were injured in the incident that occurred on Route 70 (Waterbury Road), between Winslow and Marion Roads. 38-year-old Ryan Sheehan of Cheshire was driving the first vehicle and sustained serious injuries in the crash and had to be extricated by responders. 58-year-old Thomas Goerg, the driver of the second vehicle, also had to be extricated and sustained serious injuries, while Goerg’s passenger, a minor in the back seat of his vehicle only incurred minor injuries. Goerg eventually died at St. Mary’s Hospital due to the severity of his injuries. Officials are still investigating the incident. Further updates will be provided as more info becomes available.

The highest risk of serious injuries typically occur in head-on collisions, and that makes identifying the causes of these incidents extremely important. Preventing future collisions rely on taking reckless or negligent drivers off the road and making them liable for their actions. That said, victims of these unfortunate events, or their next of kin, would be well-served by consulting legal experts to determine what their options could be.

Greenwich – Heavy Delays Following Crash

Three vehicles collided on the highway in Greenwich yesterday morning.

Officials received reports of the crash at around 7:28 a.m. The incident occurred before Exit 31 on the westbound side of Route 15, blocking a significant portion of the thoroughfare and causing delays stretching back several miles. Authorities have yet to specify the number of motorists involved in the collision, but injuries were reported and paramedics were requested on-site. The crash is currently under investigation. This post will be updated when more info becomes available.

This incident exemplifies the need for emergency responders to process and clear accident sites as quickly as they can, although, in this instance, the nature of the crash just made it impossible for officials not to block off a good portion of the roadway. These things said, identifying crash causes will always be the primary goal as this can prevent future incidents. Not only that, parties injured in these accidents may have the option of seeking damages if deemed appropriate by their legal counsel.

Berlin – Vehicle Crash With Entrapment

A motorist was trapped inside a vehicle following a crash in Berlin last Monday.

Authorities are currently investigating an incident that occurred in the area of 658 Berlin Turnpike (Route 15/US-5). According to responders, an unspecified number of vehicles crashed at the scene, resulting in injuries and trapping one motorist inside a vehicle. Firefighters immediately arrived and extricated the victim, after which everyone involved in the incident was tended to by responding medical personnel. Officials have yet to release more info regarding the crash and will do so when appropriate.

In most cases, vehicle entrapment is a relatively accurate indicator of how serious a specific accident is. These incidents obviously require the involvement of firefighters so that extrication can be safely achieved. And because the risk of injuries is high, these scenarios exemplify the need for authorities to accurately identify crash culprits/causes as preventing these unfortunate events should be the goal of everyone concerned. These things said, we always have the option of consulting legal experts if ever we are involved in accidents caused by negligence.

Orange – Highway Rollover Crash

A vehicle overturned on the highway in Orange yesterday morning.

Crash responders converged on the northbound lanes of Route 15 after authorities received reports of a crash in the area at approximately 7:37 a.m. The incident occurred before Exit 56 and resulted in delays stretching back to Exit 50 before the scene was cleared. A vehicle overturned and blocked off the right lane of the roadway. Injuries were reported, but officials have yet to specify the number of motorists involved in the crash or if extrication was needed. The crash site has since been cleared, and authorities are currently investigating the cause of the accident. This story will be updated as soon as officials release more info.

Most modern vehicles are equipped with devices or features that reduce the chances of overturning in various emergency conditions. Despite this, rollover crashes still occur and, in many cases, point to reckless or negligent behavior as a possible cause. It’s important to take note of this in the event we or our loved ones are involved in similar situations. Confirmed cases of negligence can enable injured parties to file for damages under proper circumstances and with the help of expert counsel.

Trumbull – Fatal Highway Crash

Two motorists were involved in a highway crash in Trumbull early Sunday evening.

At approximately 7:17 p.m., 59-year-old Pamela Maestri-Howes of Easton was driving her Ford Explorer south on Route 15 when a Mercedes-Benz sedan, driven by a still-unidentified motorist, collided with her vehicle. Maestri-Howes was ejected from her vehicle after it veered off its intended path, crashing into a guardrail and rolling over before coming to a stop. She was transported to St. Vincent’s Medical Center where she was eventually pronounced dead. The driver of the Mercedes-Benz sustained minor injuries but refused treatment. The crash is currently under active investigation. More details will follow.

Rollover accidents almost always result in serious injuries to motorists. A person died in this case, and identifying its cause is imperative if responsible parties are to be brought to justice. This type of crash can be caused by different factors, and all of them have to be explored by investigators. Whatever the outcome of this and other similar cases, victims or their families have to be informed of the legal options they may be entitled to. With the help of expert counsel, pursuing these avenues can help them cope and find closure.

Vernon – Car Crashes Into Building

Injuries were reported after a car crashed into a building in Vernon yesterday.

Authorities responded to Vernon Avenue at West Main Street after receiving reports of a crash in the area. According to responders, a vehicle crashed into a building, resulting in injuries to a still-unspecified number of motorists. The building also incurred heavy damage which prompted local officials to call in building inspectors to assess the structure. EMS crews were requested on-site to tend to people injured in the incident. As of posting time, everyone affected has been accounted for by emergency crews. The case is currently being investigated. More details will be provided when appropriate.

It is not unusual for car-building collisions to result in injuries to people. While many of these cases have been caused by driver error/negligence, some have also been caused by unexpected vehicle failures/defects. Investigators will look at all angles in determining the causes of these crashes. That said, motorists should always be aware of the legal avenues they can explore if injured in similar situations.

Rocky Hill – Highway Crash

State and local officials were alerted to a highway crash in Rocky Hill yesterday evening.

At approximately 8:41 p.m., reports came in of an accident on the northbound lanes of I-91. Emergency crews were dispatched to the area and discovered a crash that occurred about a mile before Exit 24 (Silas Deane Highway). Injuries were reported in the incident, and fire and EMS teams have since arrived to help everyone affected by the crash. No word yet on entrapment, DUI or the specific number of vehicles and motorists involved in the accident. Road crews were able to clear the site less than an hour later, and the incident is now under active investigation. Updates will be provided when officials release more info.

Unsurprisingly, nighttime incidents can be more challenging for responders to process, usually taking more time to clear. That said, emergency crews are always prepared for any contingency, and this case is no exception. Keeping ourselves updated on these events can be useful because it can inform us of our options if ever we experience similar situations. It’s also in these instances where the guidance of legal experts will prove to be very useful.

East Windsor – Fatal Rollover Crash

A truck with two occupants rolled over on the highway in East Windsor last Sunday evening.

44-year-old Russell Jacobs III of Massachusetts was driving north on I-91 with a passenger, 37-year-old Athena Hunter, also from Massachusetts. At approximately 8:30 p.m. the pickup truck they were riding in suddenly veered off the highway at Exit 45 (Route 140), crashing into a guardrail before rolling over. Hunter incurred minor injuries and was taken to Hartford Hospital for treatment, while Jacobs sustained critical injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. Current data available does not indicate the involvement of other vehicles in the incident. The crash is under active investigation. Authorities will release more info when appropriate.

Pickup trucks are inherently more prone to rollover accidents which can then result in serious injuries. There have been many instances of vehicle defects/failures causing similar crashes in the past, so these are factors that always considered by accident investigators. Whatever the outcome, the involvement of any form of negligence can enable aggrieved parties (or their next of kin) to pursue legal options against negligent culprits.

Haddam – Fatal Rollover Crash

Authorities are currently investigating a rollover crash in Haddam last Saturday evening.

49-year-old Anthony Rock was driving his Dodge Grand Caravan south on Route 9 that evening when his vehicle suddenly swerved off the proper lane, crashing into the median and rolling over before coming to a stop. Rock sustained critical injuries in the crash and was pronounced dead soon after. Other vehicles were reportedly not involved in the incident. Road crews have since cleared the roadway of all obstructions, and officials are currently investigating the accident. This post will be updated as soon as more info becomes available.

This type of accident still occurs every now and then: vehicles that suddenly swerve off roadways and crash into various roadside structures, resulting in injuries and heavy damage. While some of these cases have been associated with driver negligence, others have been connected to vehicle failures/defects. Authorities are always expected to exhaust all means to accurately establish accountability in all cases. It’s important to take note of this because in cases where negligence is discovered, injured parties or the families of those killed may have the option of filing for damages if legal experts deem it appropriate.

Danbury – Vehicle Crash With Injuries

Injuries were reported after a vehicle crash in Danbury yesterday afternoon.

The incident occurred a few minutes before 2:00 p.m. near the intersection of Shelter Rock Road and Topstone Drive. According to officials, fire and EMS teams were requested on-site to assist people involved in the accident. No word yet on the number of affected vehicles and motorists, though responders did report everyone at the crash site was conscious and responsive. The area has since been cleared of obstructions, and authorities are currently investigating the incident. Updates will be provided when officials release more info.

Road accidents happen almost every day on various roads across the state. It pays to be updated on these incidents because we learn more about the circumstances that either precede or follow these crashes, thus we are informed of our options if ever we or our loved ones experience similar situations. The key takeaway is: people injured in any road-related incident can consult legal experts to determine what their options could be.
