Hamden – Town Crash Update
Authorities just released more details regarding last Wednesday’s crash in Hamden.
At around 8:30 p.m., 25-year-old Moet Bacote of New Haven was driving his vehicle south on State Street (Route 5) when his vehicle suddenly swerved onto the opposite lane, crashing into a box truck being driven by a 26-year-old resident of Middlefield. Bacote sustained serious injuries in the head-on crash and was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital where he pronounced dead shortly after. The still-unidentified driver of the truck was also transported to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries. Both vehicles sustained heavy damage and blocked off the roadway for several hours. Route 5 has since been cleared of all obstructions. The crash is still under investigation.
Authorities always investigate head-on collisions with the goal of making changes that can hopefully prevent future incidents. There have been cases where similar collisions were caused by reckless behavior, negligence or DUI, so these are factors that officials will always look at. Establishing liability will not only bring culprits to justice, but also allow victims to pursue legal options that can help them find closure.
