Monroe – Fatal Rollover Crash
A motorist died in a crash in Monroe yesterday afternoon.
Local authorities received reports of the crash a few minutes before noon and quickly sent emergency crews to Route 111. According to responders, a vehicle struck a bridge structure and overturned. The driver of the vehicle sustained critical injuries in the collision and was transported to St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport for treatment. The victim died shortly after. A section of Route 111 near its intersection with Route 34 was closed to facilitate an investigation into the cause of the crash. The identity of the motorist has been withheld by officials pending notification of family members. Updates will be provided as soon as authorities release more information.
In many instances, single-vehicle accidents resulting in serious injuries or fatalities don’t exhibit immediately apparent causes. It’s in these situations where investigators have to study all angles, including possible product defects, to achieve their goal of establishing liability. This objective has a secondary benefit of allowing victims of these unfortunate events, or their families, to file for damages in cases where legal experts deem it as an appropriate course of action.
