Middletown – Multiple Victims In Head-On Crash
A head-on collision with multiple injuries was reported in Middletown last Friday.
The incident occurred at around 11:00 p.m. in the vicinity of 485 Washington Street, near railroad tracks crossing the roadway. A 2017 Nissan Rogue was traveling west when it crossed onto the opposite lane, colliding head-on with a 2010 Chevrolet Silverado traveling east. Three occupants inside the Chevy sustained injuries and were transported to Hartford Hospital for treatment: still-unidentified driver and passenger, both 17 years old, and 54-year-old Kevin McAuliffe of East Hampton. Leticia M. Lennon was driving the Nissan and was killed in the crash, while 38-year-old Cherise L. Sheff of Hartford, her passenger, sustained critical injuries and had to be extricated by responding firefighters before she was taken to Hartford Hospital. The incident is still under investigation, and officials are asking witnesses to contact them right away.
Head-on collisions almost always result in heavy damage and serious injuries. Negligence can play a part in these incidents, making it absolutely crucial that culprits are quickly apprehended. That said, injuries caused by negligence, DUI, or reckless behavior can allow victims to file damage claims with the help of expert legal counsel.
