Stamford – Senior Couple Killed By Car Exhaust
A couple in their 80s were killed in a home accident in Stamford yesterday morning.
Authorities responded to an undisclosed home on Long Ridge Road following reports of an accident in the area. An initial investigation of the scene suggests a couple in their 80s were killed by carbon monoxide poisoning after their car was inadvertently left with a running engine inside their garage. There is currently no indication of ill-intent — available evidence points to this case as purely accidental. The identities of the victims have been withheld pending notification of next-of-kin. Authorities are still investigating the accident and are expected to release updates when appropriate.
As of posting time, evidence suggesting foul play has yet to be discovered by investigators. That said, authorities are expected to scour the accident site for data that will allow them to accurately establish liability. This is particularly important because the involvement of ill-intent or negligence will entail legal ramifications that victims’ next-of-kin can discuss with legal experts.
