North Stonington – Fatalities In Highway Crash
Motorists were killed in a wrong-way crash in North Stonington last Wednesday evening.
The incident occurred on the northbound lanes of I-95 and involved two vehicles. A Honda carrying four occupants was traveling north when it collided with a Mercedes that had swerved onto its path. 17-year-old Abigayl Lanphear was driving the Mercedes, with 17-year-old Jada Laboy as her passenger. Lanphear was killed in the collision, while Laboy sustained serious injuries. The Honda was driven by 85-year-old Roger Noel, with 83-year-old Dorothy Noel as his front passenger. Both sustained critical injuries and were killed in the crash. 56-year-old Yvonne Noel and 62-year-old Cynthia Plaziak were in the back seat of the Honda and also sustained injuries but are in stable condition. The incident is currently under investigation. Updates will be provided when more info becomes available.
Head-on collisions almost always result in serious, if not fatal, injuries. It’s possible that this crash was caused by some form of negligence, though we have to wait for investigators to verify that or other possibilities. Suffice it to say, the involvement of DUI, reckless behavior or negligence can allow victims or their families to pursue legal options that will help them cope and eventually find closure.
