Bridgeport – Rollover Crash Update
Local officials just released an update regarding last Tuesday’s intersection crash in Bridgeport.
The incident occurred at the intersection of Cleveland Avenue and Lincoln Boulevard. Three vehicles were involved in the crash, with one vehicle resting on its roof when emergency responders arrived. One motorist was transported to St. Vincent’s Medical Center for treatment of injuries, while other parties were evaluated on-site. After an initial investigation of the incident, authorities have released additional details regarding the circumstances that led to the intersection crash. According to reports, the driver of one vehicle drove through a stop sign and was overspeeding. This led to that vehicle crashing into a second vehicle that rolled over due to the severity of the impact. The vehicle that overturned also hit a third vehicle due to the first collision. Based on the evidence that authorities have gathered so far, a misdemeanor summons has been issued against the driver of the overspeeding vehicle. Officials have yet to identify any party involved in the incident and will do so when appropriate.
It is now apparent that at least one party exhibited reckless behavior that resulted in this crash. This is noteworthy because, in incidents where reckless or negligent behavior has been established, injured parties may have the option of seeking damages under proper circumstances and with the guidance of expert legal counsel.
