Westport – Highway Accident

A highway crash resulted in heavy delays in Westport yesterday morning.

According to authorities, the accident occurred on the southbound side of Merritt Parkway (Route 15), near Exit 42, at approximately 9:10 a.m. Emergency crews have already arrived to assist those injured in the incident and to clear the scene. Officials have yet to identify motorists involved in the incident pending an investigation. More information will be provided as they become available.

In most situations, authorities have to process and clear highway accidents quickly to avoid their inadvertent effects, such as heavy delays. That said, investigators will always work diligently to identify the causes of these crashes as this will help officials make highway driving safer for everyone. As motorists plying various roads in the state, we should also be aware of our legal rights if ever we are involved in any accident that results in injuries.

Bristol – Disabled Injured In Accident

A man on a wheelchair was hit by a vehicle in Bristol yesterday afternoon.

Emergency crews were dispatched to the intersection of Center and Foley Streets after authorities received reports of an accident in the area. At approximately 1:40 p.m., a disabled man on a wheelchair was hit by a passing Kia Sportage. The victim sustained injuries and was immediately transported to the hospital for treatment. The Kia swerved off the roadway after hitting the pedestrian, crashing into a utility pole in the process. The driver was not injured. Crews from Eversource were called in to repair the damaged pole. The crash is currently under investigation. More information will be released as they become available.

Pedestrian accidents have to be investigated thoroughly to determine if reckless behavior, DUI or negligence are involved. In cases where any of these factors can be established, injured parties can consult their legal counsel to determine their best course of action.

Southbury – Multi-Vehicle Highway Crash Update

Authorities have just released updates regarding last Tuesday’s highway crash in Southbury.

The incident occurred on the westbound side of I-84, near Exit 14. According to updates released by officials yesterday, 16-year-old Garrett Sheehan exhibited reckless driving that led to the multiple-vehicle accident. Sheehan lost control of his 2007 BMW and hit a 2019 Chevrolet Impala. That vehicle then hit a 2016 Chevrolet Sonic, forcing it to spin out and crash into a guardrail before hitting a 2018 RAM Promaster. The pickup truck rolled over due to that final collision. The crash resulted in multiple injuries, and several motorists were taken to various area hospitals for treatment. Sheehan is scheduled to appear in court to face misdemeanor charges of reckless driving and violating passenger restrictions.

This accident highlights many of the circumstances that surround highway accidents that result in serious injuries to motorists. Reckless driving is a serious offense that requires an appropriate response so that future incidents can be avoided. It’s also important to note that victims of these unfortunate events can consult legal experts to explore various avenues related to filing for damages/compensation.

Stamford – Supreme Court Ruling On Pedestrian Accident

The state Supreme Court just gave a ruling related to a decade-old pedestrian case in Stamford.

Back on December 3, 2009, now 54-year-old Brenda Snell was walking on the sidewalk along Stillwater Avenue when she was hit and dragged by a stolen car driven by then 17-year-old Deondre Bowden. Prior to the hit, Bowden stole the vehicle after it was left unattended, with its engine running, by cab driver Johnley Sanival. In 2015, Snell filed a civil case against Norwalk Yellow Cab, the owner of the stolen vehicle that hit her. The jury in that case voted against Snell, which prompted her to elevate the case to the higher court. The details of the recent Supreme Court ruling revolved around the proximate and superseding causes of Snell’s injuries: Bowden’s reckless behavior (stealing the car and hitting Snell), or Sanival’s negligence (leaving the car running/with keys inside). Bowden was subsequently sentenced to jail for various charges related to the incident. Snell’s legal team is now focused on establishing a significant level of responsibility/liability on the part of the cab driver (Sanival) and owner of the vehicle (Norwalk Yellow Cab).

Legal experts are better equipped to analyze/study the details related to this recent ruling. That said, following this case is beneficial to motorists and pedestrians because it highlights many of the circumstances that surround road incidents that result in physical injuries. We need to be aware of the legal processes, as well as our rights and options, if ever we or our loved ones are involved in similar situations.

Seymour – Crash Fatality Identified

The victim of a recent intersection crash in Seymour has been identified.

73-year-old Francis Markey of Beacon Falls was riding his motorcycle north on North Street (Route 721) when he collided with a vehicle traveling west on Route 67 (New Haven Road). Markey sustained critical injuries in the crash and was immediately brought to the hospital where he eventually died. The driver of the vehicle was not harmed but was still sent to the hospital for evaluation. The case is still being investigated. Officials continue to ask anyone who may have witnessed the incident to contact them as soon as possible.

This case remains open, so we have yet to know the specific cause of the crash. Suffice it to say, if investigators discover negligence or reckless behavior, the victim’s family will have the option of filing for damages if deemed appropriate by their legal counsel.
