Enfield – Police Chase Ends In Fatal Crash
A car chase that started in Enfield resulted in fatalities yesterday morning.
A few minutes after 11:00 a.m., an Enfield patrol officer reported observing a pickup truck running erratically near the intersection of Route 5 and Alden Avenue. The officer followed the vehicle on its northbound route and reported seeing the driver running through several red lights in the area. Just a few minutes later, the truck passed the Connecticut-Massachusettes line after which it crashed into a U.S. Postal Service vehicle being driven by 40-year-old Dan Nacin of Enfield. The federal employee sustained critical injuries in the crash and was immediately transported to a nearby hospital where he was eventually pronounced dead. The driver of the pickup truck also sustained serious injuries and eventually died. The crash is currently being investigated by state and local officials. Updates will be provided as they become available.
The circumstances and locations involved in this case required the intervention of authorities from both Connecticut and Massachusettes. Jurisdictions aside, investigators will eventually establish liability in this case. Taking note of this is important because in road incidents that involve DUI, reckless behavior or negligence, aggrieved parties or their families will have various options they can discuss with their legal counsel to help them find closure after these unfortunate events.
