Stamford – Critical Injuries In Rollover Crash
A teen is fighting for his life following a rollover crash in Stamford late Saturday afternoon.
Emergency teams responded to the vicinity of 617 Webbs Hill Road after authorities received reports of a crash in the area. Just past 4:00 p.m., a 2005 Dodge Dakota crashed and rolled over, throwing its passenger off the vehicle. The driver, an 18-year-old Stamford resident, was not seriously hurt in the accident, while the ejected occupant, a 14-year-old teen, sustained serious injuries and was initially transported to Stamford Hospital for treatment. His condition worsened, prompting officials to transfer the victim to Yale-New Haven Hospital where he remains in critical condition. There is evidence suggesting the driver was speeding at the time of the crash, though authorities are still investigating the case. This story will be updated as more info becomes available.
