Middletown – Arrigoni Bridge Accident Update
Middletown Police have released more details about the three-car crash in Middletown last Wednesday evening.
Three vehicles were involved in a major crash on the Arrigoni Bridge that resulted in serious injuries and closure of the bridge. Authorities have now reported that prior to that accident, one of the involved vehicles, a white Mercedes-Benz, was apprehended by Middletown Police on Main Street for a traffic violation. As the police officer was approaching the vehicle, its driver sped away, running a red light. The officer followed the vehicle until the subsequent crash that occurred on the Arrigoni Bridge. The white Mercedes-Benz hit a guardrail on the bridge before hitting two other vehicles, a Nissan Murano and a Ford Taurus, both traveling westbound and severely damaged in the crash. As with the original report, multiple people were transported to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries.
It’s clear in this case that there was one offending driver/vehicle that initiated the entire incident. That said, authorities will continue to investigate this crash to determine if DUI, negligence or reckless driving could be involved. It’s particularly important because injuries sustained by the other parties could entitle them to file damage/compensation claims against the offending driver.
