Emergency responders, including EMS crews, quickly arrived at the scene to help motorists affected by the crash. Officials have yet to specify the number of people and vehicles involved in the incident — the crash is still under investigation. Authorities will release updates when necessary.

State and local officials handling this case have yet to release details informing us of the severity of this incident.

New Haven – Multiple Injuries In Bus Accident

A school bus with passengers collided with a car in New Haven yesterday afternoon.

At around 3:45 p.m., a school bus taking 17 students home from Ross Woodward School was traveling south on Middletown Avenue when a vehicle traveling north suddenly swerved onto its path. This resulted in a head-on collision between the two vehicles. Of the 17 students riding the bus, 6 were taken to the hospital for evaluation and treatment. Officials have yet to identify the driver of the second vehicle and whether or not the motorist was injured. The incident is currently under investigation. This post will be updated as soon as officials release more information.

Head-on collisions typically result in serious injuries. Authorities will always exhibit due diligence in establishing accountability in these cases as this can help them address issues and improve road safety for everyone. That said, if investigators discover negligence, reckless behavior or DUI in these incidents, injured parties may have various legal options that can help them find closure. Under appropriate circumstances, this can include filing for compensation/damages.

Danbury – Bus Crashes, Overturns

A bus figured in an accident in Danbury last Monday morning.

Fire and EMS crews responded to West Redding Road after local authorities received reports of an overturned bus in the area. According to responders, a bus with no passengers swerved off the roadway and rolled onto its side. The driver of the vehicle sustained minor injuries and was evaluated and treated on-site by EMS personnel. The area near the intersection of West Redding and East Starrs Plain Roads was closed following the incident. The area has since been cleared. Based on evidence already gathered by authorities, no other vehicle was involved in the accident. More information will be released when appropriate.

It is in these cases where accident investigators have to look at other, less obvious possibilities in establishing liability. If the driver is cleared of any negligence, then other angles, including product/vehicle defects, can be explored. That said, and whatever the outcome of these investigations, if authorities discover any form of negligence, aggrieved parties may have options that can be discussed with legal experts.

Norwich – Truck Crash Victim Identified

Local authorities just released the identity of last Monday’s crash fatality in Norwich.

78-year-old Robert Potter was driving his pickup truck on West Town Street when he reportedly experienced a serious medical condition. His vehicle swerved off the roadway, hitting several vehicles, including a school bus, before coming to a stop in a Global Gas Station parking lot. The victim had to be extricated from the truck by responding firefighters before he was taken to the hospital where he was eventually pronounced dead. The driver was the only person injured in the incident. Authorities are still investigating the crash.

Despite the presence of an obvious cause, authorities handling this case will still look at all possibilities before making any conclusion. This is noteworthy because if investigators discover negligence in this and other similar cases, victims or their families may have the option of filing for damages with the help of expert legal counsel.

Greenwich – Highway Tractor-Trailer Crash

Greenwich motorists experienced heavy delays following a truck crash yesterday morning.

At around 11:20 a.m., a tractor-trailer was traveling on the southbound side of I-95 when it collided with another vehicle near Exit 4 (Indian Field Road). The driver of the car was injured in the accident and was immediately taken to the hospital for treatment. The incident forced the truck into the center divider of the highway where it rolled over to its side. A significant amount of diesel fuel was spilled onto the roadway, forcing responders to cordon off the area and ask for support from cleanup crews. The accident resulted in massive delays that also affected local streets in the area. The crash is currently under investigation. Updates will be provided as soon as authorities release more information.

This case highlights the diligence accident responders will always exhibit when dealing with any road incident.
