Suffield – Route 168 Crash Update
Authorities have identified the victim of last Thursday’s crash in Suffield.
61-year-old Ronald Roy of West Springfield was driving his 1998 Mercury Grand Marquis eastbound on Mountain Road (Route 168), near the Connecticut-Massachusettes state line, when his vehicle suddenly swerved onto the opposite lane, crashing into a dump truck driven by Steven Aldair of Springfield. Roy sustained critical injuries in the head-on collision and died at the scene. Authorities are still investigating the crash and will release more information when appropriate.
Head-on collisions almost always result in serious injuries, and investigators handling this case will study all possibilities in establishing liability. Officials have yet to identify the cause of the crash, though if they discover negligence not connected to the victim, his family may have legal options they can study to help them find closure.
