Fairfield – Highway Crash Causes Delays And Injuries

Authorities responded to a highway crash in Fairfield yesterday morning.

Two vehicles were involved in a crash on the southbound side of I-95 crossing Fairfield, between exits 19 and 18. Injuries were reported by officials, and the left lane was closed following the crash while emergency crews tended to those involved in the accident. Authorities have yet to release more information about the incident and will do so when they become available.

Highway accidents have a higher chance of causing injuries due to the high speeds involved. Having said that, investigators will always look at any negligent act/behavior that could cause these incidents. For motorists, this should remind us that we have rights and options whenever we travel along any road across the state.

Meriden – Multi-Vehicle Crash On Highway

Two lanes were closed following a highway accident in Meriden yesterday afternoon.

The southbound side of I-91 crossing Meriden experienced heavy delays following a crash involving multiple vehicles between exits 19 and 18. Emergency crews have since arrived and assisted motorists who were injured in the accident. Additional details about the incident will be released as authorities have yet to conclude their investigation into the factors surrounding the crash. Officials will provide updates when appropriate.

Rush hour highway accidents can result in heavy delays, so emergency crews always focus on assisting injured motorists and clearing crash sites as quickly as possible. They do this without diminishing the integrity of crash site investigations — that efficiency highlights the dedication authorities have in dealing with these situations. That said, if reckless behavior or negligence is established in any of these cases, injured motorists can consult legal experts to determine what their options are in terms of filing for damages/compensation.

Bridgeport – Motorist Trapped Inside Car Identified

Officials have identified the motorist who was trapped inside his car in Bridgeport last Wednesday.

21-year-old Jarrod Marotto of Southington was driving his car south on Park Avenue when a tree struck by lightning fell onto his vehicle. He was seriously injured in the accident and was trapped inside the vehicle for around an hour while live power lines dangled above his car. Responding authorities had to wait for crews from United Illuminating Co. to arrive and remove the fallen tree and lines before Marotto could be extricated. He was quickly transported to St. Vincent Medical Center but was later pronounced dead. Officials are still investigating the details connected to this accident. More information will be released when available.

Despite the presence of seemingly obvious causes, authorities handling this case will still study the circumstances surrounding the crash and subsequent rescue to ensure that negligence did not play a part. If any party can be considered negligent, the family of the victim can be entitled to damages/compensation under appropriate circumstances.

Mansfield – Fatality After Intersection Crash

A motorist died after his vehicle crashed in Mansfield last Saturday morning.

67-year-old Duane Farrell of Vernon was driving his 2016 Volkswagen Jetta north on Route 195 when his vehicle swerved into the right shoulder of the roadway; hitting several objects, including a utility pole; before stopping. Emergency crews quickly arrived at the scene and discovered Farrell injured and unresponsive. Cindy Farrell, his passenger, also sustained serious injuries. Both victims were quickly brought to Windham Community Medical Hospital for treatment. Duane Farrell died soon after. According to officials, both victims were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the accident. Authorities are investigating the possibility that the driver may have experienced a medical condition prior to the actual crash. The incident is still under investigation and officials will release more information when they become available.

Investigators handling this case have so far not seen any indication of weather or road conditions causing the crash. That said, authorities will study all possible angles in any road incident so that they can accurately identify causes/culprits. It’s important to take note of this because if negligence is established in any of these cases, injured parties may be entitled to compensation or have legal options at their disposal.

Hamden – Multi-Vehicle Crash With Injuries

Six vehicles were involved in a crash in Hamden yesterday.

The pileup occurred on Dixwell Avenue (Route 10) in front of the town high school. Emergency crews had to extricate four people from their vehicles. Five people have since been transported to the hospital for treatment of injuries. Authorities have now started investigating the cause of the crash. Further updates, including the identities of those involved, will be released as soon as officials collect them.

Multiple-vehicle accidents can be challenging to investigate — culprits/causes are not readily obvious in most cases. That said, investigators will always study all possibilities so that they can accurately establish liability. It’s also important to know that if any form of negligence or reckless behavior can be associated with these incidents, injured parties may be entitled to compensation with the help of expert legal counsel.

Bridgeport – High-Speed Crash And Attempted Hit-And-Run

A high-speed crash in Bridgeport yesterday evening trapped two motorists inside their car.

The accident occurred on Fairfield Avenue, near its intersection with Clinton Avenue. According to authorities and witnesses, a white Audi was traveling on Fairfield Avenue when it crashed into a red Hyundai. Immediately after the collision, a driver was observed trying to flee the accident scene. Police were able to apprehend the suspect a short time later. Two people had to be extricated from their vehicle by emergency crews — it took them around half an hour to do so. Everyone injured has since been transported to the hospital by EMS crews. The identities of those involved have yet to be disclosed pending an investigation into the cause of the incident.

It goes without saying that injuries resulting from reckless behavior or negligence can entitle parties to damage/compensation under appropriate circumstances. Instances of hit-and-run will only strengthen these cases/claims.

Stratford – Rush Hour Highway Crash

A three-vehicle accident occurred in Stratford yesterday afternoon.

At around 5:00 p.m., reports came in of a crash on the northbound side of Route 15, between exits 53 and 54. Three vehicles collided, resulting in injuries. Emergency crews quickly arrived to tend to those involved. One lane was closed by officials immediately after the accident. The scene has since been cleared. The identities of those involved have yet to be released pending an investigation. Officials will release updates when appropriate.

Highway/interstate accidents can generally result in heavy delays, so emergency crews typically focus on clearing these incidents quickly. Having said that, once motorists have been attended to, officials quickly focus their attention on identifying the causes of these high-speed accidents. This is important so that victims and culprits can be separated and identified accurately.

Weston – Rollover Crash

A vehicle crash injured one person in Weston yesterday morning.

Fire and EMS crews responded to reports of a crash on Godfrey Road West and discovered a car that swerved off the road and rolled over into an embankment. The driver sustained injuries in the accident and was transported to Norwalk Hospital for treatment. Godfrey Road West was closed by authorities when they arrived at the scene but has since been reopened. The identity of the lone victim has yet to be released pending an investigation. Updates will be provided by officials when appropriate.

Single-vehicle accidents that don’t exhibit any obvious signs of driver error are investigated for possible product/vehicle defects, aside from studying other possibilities.

Bridgeport – Highway Crash With Injuries

Authorities responded to an accident in Bridgeport yesterday evening.

The incident occurred on the southbound side of I-95 crossing Bridgeport, around half a mile after exit 29 (off-ramp to Seaview Avenue). A vehicle crash resulted in injuries. Emergency crews have already tended to those involved in the accident. Other details have yet to be provided by officials pending an investigation into the cause of the incident.

Nighttime accidents typically have a higher chance of injuring motorists, so identifying what causes these crashes is very important to authorities so that future incidents can be avoided. That said, investigators have to know if negligence or reckless behavior is involved, so that suspects/culprits can be brought to justice.

Live electrical wires were hanging on top and making contact with the vehicle. Emergency crews have since attended to the victim. The incident is currently being investigated. Updates will be provided by officials when available.
