Berlin – Hit-And-Run Suspect Identified

State officials just released the identity of a motorist involved in a recent hit-and-run incident in Berlin.

At approximately 5:15 a.m. on October 2, 54-year-old Marie Ahern of Middletown was on the southbound side of Route 9, near Exit 23 (Christian Lane), when she was struck by a 2014 Toyota Corolla being driven by 76-year-old Joseph Lamontagne of Cheshire. Ahern sustained critical injuries in the crash and was pronounced dead on-site. Lamontagne fled the area instead of stopping. State police eventually tracked down and apprehended the suspect who is currently cooperating with authorities. This case is still under investigation. Officials will release updates when appropriate.

Hit-and-run incidents still occur despite people knowing that fleeing accident sites will only make things worse for suspects. Obviously, these culprits have to brought to justice. That said, people who are injured in similar situations should also be aware of their own legal options. With the help of expert counsel, aggrieved parties can pursue avenues that can help them find closure.

If you or someone you care about was injured in an accident, you may need help navigating the complex challenges of paying for your medical bills, recouping your lost wages, and regaining your quality of life. The Connecticut attorneys with Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers can help you through this process, working to hold the responsible party accountable for the pain and suffering you have had to endure.

Berlin – Highway Truck Accident

A truck crashed on the highway in Berlin yesterday morning.

State and local officials were alerted to the incident and quickly sent emergency crews to the Mill Street/Route 372 exit of Route 15 North. According to responders, a truck crashed in the area, resulting in injuries to an unspecified number of motorists. No word yet on the involvement of other vehicles. The truck rolled over on the highway, prompting road crews to cordon off the crash site. Authorities have since accounted for and assisted everyone involved in the crash and are currently investigating the incident. Updates will be provided as soon as officials release more info.

Rollover crashes almost always result in injuries and are reliable indicators of the severity of specific accidents. In this case, it took several hours for emergency responders to clear the site, and that speaks to the dedication authorities would always have in dealing with these situations. They will exhibit the same diligence in making sure responsible parties are brought to justice, and this may also enable injured parties to pursue separate legal avenues against negligent parties.

If you or someone you care about was injured in an accident, you may need help navigating the complex challenges of paying for your medical bills, recouping your lost wages, and regaining your quality of life.

Berlin – Vehicle In Pedestrian Crash Identified

Local officials just released an update regarding last Wednesday’s pedestrian incident in Berlin.

At around 10:40 p.m., 58-year-old Janine Wiktor was at a McDonald’s on 185 New Britain Road when she was struck by a vehicle. The driver fled the scene immediately, leaving Wiktor critically injured. The victim eventually died due to her injuries. Berlin authorities have now released video footage that identified the suspect vehicle as a red pickup truck with possible front-end damage. Officials are asking anyone who may have info regarding the vehicle or its driver to contact them as soon as possible.

The public will frequently have opportunities to assist state and local officials to investigate and solve various road incidents. In this case, identifying and locating the suspect vehicle can help authorities bring the culprit to justice. This may also enable the victim’s family/next of kin to pursue legal options that can help them find closure.

Berlin – Victim In Pedestrian Crash Identified

Authorities just released the identity of last Wednesday’s pedestrian incident in Berlin.

At around 10:40 p.m., 58-year-old Janine Wiktor of New Britain was walking in front of 319 New Britain Road when she was hit by a passing vehicle. Wiktor died due to her injuries soon after. The driver of the vehicle fled the area before officials arrived.

Berlin – Hit-And-Run Pedestrian Crash

A pedestrian was killed in a hit-and-run incident in Berlin late Wednesday evening.

Local authorities are currently investigating an incident that occurred in front of 319 New Britain Road. At approximately 10:40 p.m., officials responded to reports of the incident and discovered a pedestrian who was killed after getting hit by an unidentified vehicle. Instead of stopping, the driver of the car fled the area. The victim’s identity has yet to be released as family members/next of kin are still being contacted. Authorities are now looking for the suspect and are asking anyone who may have relevant info to contact them as soon as possible.

Hitting a pedestrian while operating a vehicle is already a serious offense, and instances of hit-and-run will only make things worse for suspects. Authorities are expected to exhaust all means to establish accountability and bring these culprits to justice. This process can also benefit injured parties because they may have the option of filing for damages in specific cases and with the help of expert legal counsel.

Authorities have identified the victim of the crash that occurred on the southbound side of Route 9. 54-year-old Marie Ahern of Middletown was struck and killed by a vehicle near Exit 23 (Christian Lane). Officials have yet to describe the circumstances surrounding the accident — the case is still under investigation. Authorities are still collecting evidence and are asking anyone with info about the incident to contact them as soon as possible.

In some situations, authorities need testimony from witnesses to accurately identify crash culprits/causes.

Bringing culprits to justice is not the only benefit. Establishing accountability can also allow accident victims to seek damages in some cases, helping them find closure after these traumatic events.

Berlin – Hit-And-Run On The Highway

State and local officials are currently investigating a highway crash in Berlin that occurred yesterday morning.

According to officials, at approximately 10:23 a.m., a still-unidentified car was driving south on Route 9 when it hit a pedestrian near Exit 23.

Authorities are still investigating the crash and are asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident or may have seen the suspect to contact the state or local police as soon as possible.

Highway traffic in Berlin was affected after a vehicle accident yesterday.

At around 5:20 p.m., local officials received reports of a crash on the northbound lanes of Route 9, in the area of Exit 21 (Route 372/Mill Street).

As is always the case, officials have priorities in handling road accidents, particularly on major thoroughfares.

Reports came in of a scooter crash in Berlin yesterday evening.

The accident occurred at the intersection of Worthington Ridge (Route 572) and Frontage Road (Route 372). According to authorities, a scooter driven by a man in his sixties collided with a car.
