East Haven – Utility Pole Crash

A vehicle crashed into a utility pole in East Haven midday Wednesday.

Authorities blocked off Burr Street from Gerrish Avenue to Haines Street to allow emergency teams to process and clear the crash site. According to reports, a vehicle hit a utility pole in the area, rolling over before coming to a stop. An unspecified number of motorists were injured and trapped inside the vehicle, though all involved parties were safely extricated by responding firefighters. There is no indication other vehicles were a factor in the crash, though the incident is still under investigation. Authorities are expected to release more info when appropriate.

Many rollover accidents result in entrapment, requiring intervention by firefighters and other support teams to safely retrieve injured or trapped motorists. Aggrieved parties have to take note of options that they can pursue in cases where negligence is discovered. Legal experts can help victims take stock of their situations and can make appropriate suggestions.
