Hebron – Crash Leaves Firefighter With Serious Injuries
A firefighter responding to an alert was seriously hurt when his vehicle crashed in Hebron late Monday evening.
Hebron Fire Lieutenant Eric Saunders was driving on Wall Street (Route 316), en route to the Hebron Fire Station to respond to an emergency when he crashed. At approximately 11:20 p.m., the pickup truck he was driving suddenly veered off the roadway and crashed into a tree. Saunders sustained serious injuries in the crash and was trapped and rendered unconscious inside the truck. His vehicle was spotted by another firefighter responding to the same emergency who then asked for assistance. Emergency crews quickly arrived and extricated Saunders from his vehicle before taking him to Hartford Hospital where he remains in serious condition. Authorities are currently investigating the accident and will release more info when appropriate.
Vehicle accidents without immediately apparent causes occur every now and then, and it can be challenging to establish liability in these cases. That said, vehicle defects/failures have caused similar incidents in the past, so this factor will not be overlooked by investigators. Motorists who are injured in accidents involving negligence may have the option of seeking damages if legal experts deem it appropriate.
