Bridgeport – Vehicle Crashes Into Building
An SUV crashes into a commercial establishment in Bridgeport last Tuesday evening.
The incident occurred on 2738 Main Avenue (Tony’s Smoke Shop). According to authorities, at approximately 10:38 p.m., a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer with two occupants was traveling south on Main Street when it suddenly swerved off the road and crashed into the said establishment. Emergency crews quickly arrived at the scene and discovered two people inside the vehicle seriously injured in the crash. Both were extricated from the vehicle and brought to St. Vincent’s Hospital for treatment. The driver, a 23-year-old Seymour man, sustained serious injuries; while his passenger, a 23-year-old Stratford resident, also sustained injuries and is currently in critical condition. The crash is still being investigated by authorities. They are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to contact them as soon as possible.
There have been cases where single-vehicle accidents like this were caused by product/vehicle defects, so investigators will always study all angles in establishing accountability in these incidents. If negligence is discovered, injured parties may have the option of filing for damages under appropriate circumstances.
