Plainville – Single-Vehicle Crash
A car fell down an embankment and rolled over in Plainville last Tuesday afternoon.
Authorities received reports of the crash a few minutes before 2:00 p.m. and immediately dispatched emergency crews to the intersection of Town Line and Red Stone Hill Roads. According to reports, a vehicle with one occupant swerved off the roadway and fell into an embankment, rolling over before coming to a stop. The driver of the vehicle sustained injuries but was able to extricate himself from the overturned vehicle. He was assisted by medical responders but refused to be transported. The crash blocked off the intersection temporarily — the area has since been cleared. Officials are still investigating the incident.
Rollover accidents typically result in injuries and, sometimes, entrapment. While these incidents can be caused by some form of driver error, there have been cases of product defects resulting in similar scenarios. Because of this, investigators will always study all possibilities before formally establishing liability. These things said, we need to be aware of our options if ever we are involved in similar situations. In cases involving any form of negligence, we might have the option of filing for damages as determined by legal experts.
