Colchester – Fatal Head-On Collision
Two vehicles collided in Colchester last Friday.
Connecticut State Police are currently investigating a crash that occurred on Route 16 (Lebanon Avenue) near Northern Boulevard. According to initial reports, 70-year-old Diane Wallis of Colchester was driving on Lebanon Avenue when her vehicle suddenly veered onto the opposite lane, crashing head-on with a 61-year-old Colchester resident. Wallis sustained critical injuries and was immediately transported to the hospital where she was eventually pronounced dead. The second driver also sustained injuries and was taken to Backus Hospital. He is expected to recover from his back injury. Authorities are currently investigating the crash and asking possible witnesses to contact them as soon as possible.
While it seems that the culprit of this crash is obvious, authorities will always investigate this and other incidents carefully with the goal of accurately establishing liability and making sure no evidence is left ignored. This is important because various legal avenues can be made available to the state and victims following these investigations, so it only makes sense that negligent parties, if they are involved, are identified properly.
