North Haven – Highway Rollover Crash
A car suddenly rolled over on the highway in North Haven last Monday afternoon.
53-year-old Russell S. Carpenter of Windsor was driving his 2006 Chevrolet Aveo southbound on I-91 when his vehicle suddenly swerved onto the left lane and rolled over. Carpenter sustained injuries in the crash and was trapped inside his vehicle. Firefighters from North Haven quickly arrived and started extricating the victim from the overturned vehicle. He was freed and treated on-site — he refused to be transported to the hospital. According to authorities, evidence already collected indicates no other vehicle was involved in the incident, though the case is still under investigation. The crash forced the closure of the left lane which resulted in delays in the area. The crash site has since been cleared.
Based on data already gathered, the driver of the vehicle might have caused the rollover crash. That said, it’s important to note that assumptions should not be made yet as authorities will still study all angles before establishing liability. This is noteworthy considering how some accidents in the past have been caused by product defects or other factors that have yet to be discovered in this case. Bottom line: we should be aware of our legal options if ever we or our loved ones are involved in similar scenarios, particularly those where negligence has been established.
