New Canaan – Rollover Crash Fatality

A local man was killed in an accident in New Canaan last Sunday evening.

Authorities quickly dispatched emergency crews to Route 7 after an accident that occurred at approximately 10:20 p.m. According to officials, 46-year-old Matthew Holderman was traveling north on Route 7 when his vehicle suddenly swerved to the right shoulder near Sand Road. The vehicle then struck several roadside structures before crashing into a utility pole and rolling over. Holderman sustained critical injuries in the crash and was trapped inside his vehicle. He was later pronounced dead. Officials are currently investigating the crash and are asking anyone who may have witnessed it to contact them as soon as possible.

As this case is still under investigation, we have yet to be presented with evidence suggesting another party/vehicle caused the crash. In road incidents with no immediately apparent causes, investigators will look at, among other factors, product defects as possible culprits. Suffice it to say, injuries caused by any form of negligence can enable victims to file for damages if deemed appropriate by legal experts.

East Haven – Injuries After Crash

Two motorists were injured after a crash in East Haven last Friday morning.

Emergency crews were alerted after reports of an accident came in at approximately 5:00 a.m. According to authorities, a vehicle with two occupants crashed into a creek on Cosey Beach Avenue. Injuries were reported, and EMS crews immediately transported the two victims to the hospital for treatment. The crash is currently being investigated. More information about the circumstances surrounding the incident, including the identities of those involved, will be released as they become available.

Authorities have yet to determine the cause of this accident, and it’s quite common for officials to respond to incidents with no apparent causes. That said, they will exhaust all measures to establish accountability in these situations, and this will allow victims of reckless behavior or negligence to file for damages if their legal counsel deems it appropriate.

Oxford – Motorist Hospitalized After Crash

One person was seriously hurt after an accident in Oxford last Saturday morning.

At approximately 2:07 a.m., emergency crews responded to the area in front of 10 Park Road and discovered a vehicle that had fallen off a bridge.

Officials have yet to identify that person as the accident is still being investigated. Updates will be provided by authorities when appropriate.

There have been instances where product defects have caused single-vehicle accidents, so this factor will be considered when investigating this type of crash. That said, if investigators discover any form of negligence not connected to injured parties, those victims will have the option of filing for damages if their legal counsel determines it as their best course of action.
