East Windsor – Wrong-Way Crash On I-91
Last Saturday, May 11, a crash involving two vehicles occurred in I-91 South at around 2:30 a.m.
The incident happened between exits 44 and 45. The first car, a Honda Civic driven by Dashawn McDaniel of Springfield, MA was running on the center lane, headed south. The second car, another Honda Civic driven by Richard Mingione of Branford with Lyle Olson of Montville as his passenger, was also running on the center lane but was headed north. Both cars were on the southbound side of I-91 and were severely damaged in the head-on collision.
Connecticut State Police reported that McDaniel sustained serious injuries and was brought to Hartford Hospital. Mingione and Olson, on the other hand, were transported to Saint Francis Hospital. Several lanes of the southbound side of I-91 were closed immediately following the crash but were eventually reopened at around 6:30 a.m. The cause of the incident is still being determined.
Head-on automobile collisions can be difficult to investigate, but certain elements can immediately identify the offending party. In this case, one of the cars was driving against the normal traffic flow. Personal injuries caused by negligence or violating traffic laws are protected under Connecticut law, and aggrieved parties can legally ask for compensation.
