Meriden – Father Charged With Manslaughter And DUI

A father accused of DUI in a Meriden crash that killed his foster son has just been charged with manslaughter yesterday.

Back in September, James Bailey was driving on North Wall Street, with 17-year-old Alex Medina in the back seat, when he crashed their vehicle into a pole. Medina was thrown off the vehicle and sustained critical injuries. Authorities initially filed charges of reckless driving, reckless endangerment, assault with a motor vehicle and DUI against Bailey. Median fought for his life for a few days in the hospital. He eventually died on October 2. Due to this, Bailey is now facing an additional charge of vehicular manslaughter.

This case exemplifies the diligence that authorities would always exhibit when investigating road incidents and how suspects/culprits will eventually face charges commensurate to their actions. Obviously, they have to be brought to justice. What’s less apparent are the legal options aggrieved parties may be entitled to in cases where DUI, reckless behavior or negligence have been established. Talking to legal experts should help victims or their families make sense of these avenues.

If you or someone you care about was injured in an accident, you may need help navigating the complex challenges of paying for your medical bills, recouping your lost wages, and regaining your quality of life. The Connecticut attorneys with Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers can help you through this process, working to hold the responsible party accountable for the pain and suffering you have had to endure.

Bridgeport – Multi-Vehicle Rollover Crash

Several vehicles were involved in an intersection crash in Bridgeport yesterday evening.

At around 6:20 p.m., reports came in of an accident at the intersection of Cleveland Avenue and Lincoln Boulevard. Emergency crews quickly converged at the scene and discovered several vehicles that had collided at the intersection, with one vehicle on its roof. Injuries were reported but all motorists involved have been accounted for and tended to by medical personnel. Authorities have yet to identify anyone and are currently investigating the incident. This post will be updated when officials release more info.

Despite the inclusion of safety features in all modern vehicles, rollover accidents still occur and typically indicate the severity of these incidents. Because of this, quickly identifying their causes is important so that future incidents can be avoided. Motorists involved in these situations also have to be aware of their options. Victims of reckless behavior or negligence may be entitled to damages under proper circumstances and with the help of legal experts.

Wallingford – Highway Crash With Multiple Injuries

Authorities responded to and investigated a highway crash in Wallingford yesterday.

Officials received reports of the incident and immediately dispatched emergency crews to the northbound side of Route 15. Responders discovered a multiple-vehicle crash that occurred between Exits 64 and 65. Multiple injuries were reported and EMS support was requested to assist everyone involved in the crash. The severity of the incident forced officials to block off a portion of the highway, though all lanes have since been cleared. The crash is currently under investigation. Updates will be provided as soon as authorities release more info.

Road closures are sometimes required to allow responders to safety assist motorists involved in various road incidents. It also allows investigators to study and collect evidence which is imperative if culprits are to be brought to justice. Not only that, establishing liability will open various legal avenues that victims of these unfortunate events can explore. One of these options is seeking damages in cases where negligence has been discovered.

East Hartford – Highway Crash

A crash occurred on the highway in East Hartford yesterday morning.

Fire and EMS teams were dispatched to the westbound lanes of I-84 after receiving reports of a crash in the area. According to responders, the accident occurred between Exits 56 and 55 and have resulted in moderate delays in the area. Injuries were reported, though officials have yet to specify the number of vehicles and motorists involved in the incident. The crash site has since been cleared, and everyone affected has since been tended to by emergency personnel. The crash is currently under investigation, and authorities will release updates when appropriate.

Accidents on major thoroughfares such as I-84 and I-95 almost always result in delays, and authorities are required to process and clear these crash sites as quickly as possible. Of course, this is done while still allowing enough time for crash investigators to do their work, as establishing liability is imperative. Officials can use data collected from these investigations to bring culprits to justice, while victims can use these to pursue legal options that can help them find closure.

Norwalk – Interstate Accident

An accident occurred on the highway in Norwalk early yesterday evening.

At approximately 6:22 p.m., state and local officials were alerted to a crash on the westbound lanes of I-95. Emergency responders arriving at the scene discovered an accident that occurred about a quarter of a mile past Exit 15 (Route 7), resulting in injuries to an unspecified number of motorists. Paramedics were requested to the area, and it took road crews about 40 minutes to clear the scene of all obstructions, though everyone involved has since been accounted for and assisted by medical personnel. No word yet on the cause of the crash or the number of people involved. The incident is currently being investigated.

Authorities are required to prepare for worst-case scenarios when responding to any road incident, typically sending both fire and EMS teams to accident sites. Obviously, this should benefit crash victims as their safety is always the priority. As motorists plying various roads in the state, we should be aware of our rights and options if ever we are involved in accidents, particularly those involving reckless or negligent behavior.

Southbury – Car Falls Down Brook

Emergency crews responded to a single-vehicle crash in Southbury last Sunday afternoon.

Firefighters and paramedics were dispatched to South Britain Road at around 2:00 p.m. and found an overturned car in the Transylvania Brook. According to initial reports, the vehicle suddenly swerved off the roadway, falling into the brook. The driver sustained injuries but was able to self-extricate. No word yet on whether or not other vehicles were involved in the crash. State environmental officials were also called in after responders noticed vehicle fluids seeping from the car and into the waterway. The incident is currently under investigation. This story will be updated as soon as more info becomes available.

Some single-vehicle accidents do not exhibit immediately apparent causes. It’s in these cases where witness reports and expert investigations work hand in hand to achieve the goal of establishing accountability. Obviously, this is important so that culprits can be brought to justice. What’s also important but less obvious is the option of crash victims to file for damages if they are cleared of any wrongdoing and if these incidents involve some form of negligence.

At approximately 7:00 p.m., state and local officials responded to the northbound lanes of I-95 and discovered a vehicle crash near Exit 27A (Route 8) that resulted in injuries and blocked off a section of the thoroughfare.

New Haven – Intersection Rollover Crash

Local officials were alerted to a rollover crash in New Haven last Thursday evening.

Firefighters and paramedics were dispatched to the intersection of East Grand and Quinnipiac Avenues last Thursday after two vehicles collided in the area. According to reports, one of the involved vehicles rolled over in the crash, resulting in entrapment and injuries. The scene was quickly blocked off to allow responders to assist everyone involved. As of posting time, all motorists affected by the incident have been accounted for and assisted by authorities. The crash is currently under investigation and officials will release updates when appropriate.

While it doesn’t happen as frequently as it used to, rollover crashes and vehicle fires still occur despite the relative safety touted in all modern vehicles. This can be attributed to the severity of some of these incidents, but the possibility of product defects and negligence should not be overlooked. Of course, investigators will always look at all possible causes to achieve their goal of accurately establishing liability. This will not only bring culprits to justice but also allow victims to explore legal options that can help them find closure.

Tolland – Two-Vehicle Accident With Injuries

Emergency crews responded to a two-car crash in Tolland last Friday.

Authorities were alerted to the incident and immediately sent fire and EMS crews to Tolland Stage Road, right at the I-84/Exit 69 off-ramp. According to reports, two vehicles collided in the area, resulting in injuries and prompting paramedics to transport one motorist to an area hospital for treatment. The crash, which occurred at around noon, forced officials to block off the area and was only reopened at approximately 2:00 p.m. Aside from the motorist who was transported to the hospital, three other people were treated on-site. The crash is currently under investigation. Authorities have yet to identify anyone involved in the incident and will do so when appropriate.

LifeStar support was initially requested by officials responding to this crash but was eventually rescinded. Despite this, it does point to the dedication authorities will always exhibit in dealing with all road incidents: the safety of everyone involved is always the priority. That said, the next goal is to accurately identify the cause of this crash so that culprits can be brought to justice. Certain legal options may also be available to injured parties if investigators discover reckless or negligent behavior.
