New Haven – Minor On Bike Injured By Vehicle

A juvenile biker was injured by a car in New Haven yesterday afternoon.

At approximately 5:00 p.m., authorities received reports of an accident on Fowler Street and immediately dispatched emergency crews to the area. According to officials, a minor was riding a bike on that road when he was hit by a passing vehicle. The victim sustained serious injuries and was unresponsive when EMS crews arrived. Authorities cordoned off the roadway between Amity Road and Frederick Street while they investigated the incident. The identities of those involved have yet to be released by officials. They will do so when appropriate.

Bicycle accidents almost always result in serious injuries, so identifying the culprits/causes of these incidents is imperative. In cases where negligence or reckless behavior can be established, victims or their families may have the option of filing for damages once they’ve discussed their case with their legal counsel.

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.

Washington – Bicycle Accident

Authorities responded to reports of a crash in Washington yesterday morning.

At approximately 10:00 a.m., emergency crews were dispatched to Nettleton Hollow Road to investigate an accident. According to officials, a bicycle collided with a vehicle, resulting in injuries. EMS crews quickly arrived to tend to those injured in the incident, while other personnel closed down the roadway to help them investigate and clear the accident site. State police advised motorists in the area to seek alternate routes while they processed the scene. More information about the crash, including the identities of those involved, will be released when appropriate.

Riding a bicycle on public roads is inherently riskier to people, so identifying what causes these accidents can help authorities improve road safety for all bicyclists. That said, anyone injured in similar incidents, particularly those involving reckless behavior, DUI or negligence, are encouraged to consult legal experts to determine their options.

Greenwich – Cyclist Hit By Vehicle

A bike rider was seriously injured in a hit-and-run incident in Greenwich last Saturday.

The accident occurred at the intersection of Fairfield Road and North Street. At approximately 10:00 a.m., a cyclist was hit by a black vehicle in the area, resulting in serious injuries. Instead of stopping, the driver of the vehicle fled the area and was last seen traveling east on Fairfield Road. The victim was tended to by emergency crews and was immediately transported to the hospital for treatment. Authorities are still looking for the suspect. They are requesting anyone who may have information about the incident to contact them as soon as possible.

In many instances involving reckless or negligent behavior, this type of incident opens up various avenues that victims/aggrieved parties can explore with the help of their legal counsel. Instances of hit-and-run can only strengthen these cases against suspects/culprits.

He is currently in stable condition. The driver of the vehicle that hit him fled the accident scene. Witnesses have described the vehicle as a red Chevy Silverado pickup truck carrying a male driver and female passenger at the time of the crash. Officials are asking anyone who may know the whereabouts of the suspects to contact them as soon as possible.

Wallingford – Authorities Seeking Witnesses In Bike Accident

Police are still looking for witnesses with information about the fatal bike crash in Wallingford last May.

37-year-old Donald A. Carelli of Milford was riding his bike with another cyclist when he was hit and fatally wounded by a vehicle driven by 35-year-old Derek C. Fries near the intersection of Toelles and South Turnpike Roads. While Carelli was immediately brought to Yale-New Haven Hospital by emergency crews, he died a short time later. Authorities have since collected more evidence related to the crash. They are now pursuing additional leads that will provide a clearer picture of the accident. Investigators are looking for several pedestrians, who reportedly witnessed the incident but left immediately after, as they can provide additional details in the crash. Officials are also looking for two vehicles; a car that reportedly had a dashcam installed, and a motorcycle whose rider stopped beside the suspect vehicle; as these could provide additional evidence in the case. Police are asking these witnesses to contact them as soon as possible.

This open case exhibits the dedication of authorities in establishing accountability and accurately identifying causes/culprits in any road-related incident. It’s important to note that as motorists, we should be aware of our legal rights and options so that we know what to do if ever we are involved in similar situations.

East Granby – Multiple Injuries In Motorcycle-Bike Accident

A motorcycle-bike accident in East Granby last Thursday injured several people.

The incident occurred on Route 20. 60-year-old Gail Gridley of Windsor was riding her bicycle when she was hit by a motorcycle operated by 47-year-old Jason Parrott. Gridley was immediately transported by emergency crews to St. Francis Hospital for treatment of serious injuries. Parrott and his passenger were brought to Hartford Hospital for minor injuries. The scene has since been cleared by authorities.

Road incidents that don’t exhibit obvious signs of liability, like this one, will be thoroughly investigated by authorities to accurately identify causes. That said, if negligence is involved in any of these cases, aggrieved parties can file for damage/compensation claims with the help of expert legal counsel.

East Granby – Injuries After Motorcycle-Bike Crash

A bike accident closed an arterial road in East Granby yesterday afternoon.

The incident occurred on Route 20 (Turkey Hills Road) near Granger Circle. Officials immediately closed the road around that area after arriving at the scene. According to them, a motorcycle and bicycle were involved in the crash, and everyone sustained injuries in the crash. Emergency crews have transported those injured to the hospital.
